The Fast Reboot feature of Oracle Solaris is supported on the SPARC platform. This section describes typical tasks that you might be required to perform.
Use the following procedure to initiate fast reboot of a SPARC based system when the config/fastreboot_default property of the boot-config service is set to false, which is the default behavior. To change the default behavior of the Fast Reboot feature so that a fast reboot is automatically performed when the system reboots, see Managing the Boot Configuration Service.
# reboot -f
In some situations, such as when you are booting a system from the network, certain POST tests must be performed during the boot process. To reboot a SPARC based system without skipping any POST tests without having to disable the Fast Reboot default behavior, use the -p option with the reboot command, as shown in the following example:
# reboot -p
The fastreboot_default property of the boot-config service enables an automatic fast reboot of the system when either the reboot or the init 6 command is used. By default, this property's value is set to false on a SPARC based system.
The default behavior for this property can be configured by using the svccfg and svcadm commands. The following example shows how to set the property's value to true so that a fast reboot is initiated by default on the SPARC platform.
# svccfg -s "system/boot-config:default" setprop config/fastreboot_default=true # svcadm refresh svc:/system/boot-config:default
