|Transitioning From Oracle Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11.1 Oracle Solaris 11.1 Information Library|
The following system console, terminal services, and power management changes are introduced.
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. 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 5, Managing the System Console, Terminal Devices, and Power Services (Tasks), in Managing System Information, Processes, and Performance in Oracle Solaris 11.1.
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.
Review the following potential power management transition issues:
By default, suspend is not enabled on any system. To enable suspend and inspect this setting on systems that support this feature, use the poweradm command as follows:
# poweradm set suspend-enable=true # poweradm get suspend-enable
By default, the administrative-authority SMF service property of the poweradm command is set to the platform value. However, the power service goes into maintenance mode if the administrative-authority service property is set to the smf value before the time-to-full-capacity and time-to-minimum-responsiveness values have been set. If this problem occurs, you can recover as follows:
# poweradm set administrative-authority=none # poweradm set time-to-full-capacity= # poweradm set time-to-minimum-responsiveness= # svcadm clear power # poweradm set administrative-authority=smf
The GNOME power manager (GPM) feature, which runs when the GUI starts, changes the power management settings. This behavior is intentional to enable the integration of power management administration with GNOME Desktop behavior.
