System Administration Guide: Basic Administration

ProcedureHow to Enable the Console Service to Run at System Start

This procedure enables the console service to run each time the system starts. The console is not started in the current session.

Starting with the Solaris 10 11/06 release, this procedure sets the general/enabled property to true in SMF, so that the server is started at the time the system boots.

  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. Enable the server to be started at system boot.

    # smcwebserver enable

    Solaris 10 11/06: Alternatively, if you want to both start the server now, and enable the server to start when the system boots, use the command:

    # svcadm enable system/webconsole:console

    Note –

    If you are running the Solaris 10 11/06 release, you cannot enable the console by using the smcwebserver command. You must use the svcadm command.
