ProcedureSPARC: How to Change the Default Kernel by Using the eeprom Command

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Specify the alternate kernel to boot.

    # eeprom boot-file new boot-file

    For example:

    # eeprom
  3. Verify that the new parameter has been set.

    # eeprom boot-file

    The output should display the new eeprom value for the specified parameter.
