Use one of these procedures to configure OpenBoot so that a host reset or power on attempts to boot the OS automatically, or does not. This change is permanent but only takes effect after a host reset.
true – (Default) The host automatically attempts to boot from the devices specified in boot-device when you configured the boot-device parameter.
Note - If you are configuring the host for maximum availability, configure the host to automatically reboot following either an error or a hardware reconfiguration by setting auto-boot? and auto-boot-on-error? to true. The default value for auto-boot-on-error? is false.
false – The host does not automatically boot. You can boot manually.
For example, to change the default setting, type
ok setenv auto-boot? false
ok printenv auto-boot? auto-boot? = false
The host resets. After initialization, the host attempts to boot or not based on your configuration.
