System Console, Terminal Services, and Power Management Changes

The sac command and the Service Access Facility (SAF) program are not supported in Oracle Solaris 11. The system console and locally connected terminal devices are represented as instances of the SMF console-login service svc:/system/console. This service defines most of the behavior, and each instance can have specific overrides to the settings that are inherited from the service.

Note - The sac and getty modes of the ttymon command are no longer supported. However, the ttymon express mode is still supported.

If you want to offer login services on auxiliary terminals, use one of the following services:

The ttymon program is used to offer login services for these terminals. Each terminal uses a separate instance of the ttymon program. Command-line arguments that are passed by the service to the ttymon program govern the terminal's behavior. For more information, see Chapter 16, Managing the System Console, Terminal Devices, and Power Services (Tasks), in Oracle Solaris Administration: Common Tasks.

Power Management Configuration

In Oracle Solaris 10, power management is administered by configuring the /etc/power.conf file and by using the pmconfig command. In Oracle Solaris 11, the poweradm command replaces the pmconfig command. Power administration now includes a small number of controls that manage platform and implementation details. The poweradm command enables you to simplify power administration by manipulating these small number of controls. For more information, see the poweradm(1M) man page.
