Enable or Disable Automatic Booting (Oracle Solaris)

While running Oracle Solaris, use this procedure to configure OpenBoot so that a host reset or power on either attempts to boot automatically, or not. This change is permanent but only takes effect after a host reset.

  1. Log in to Oracle Solaris as a user with root privileges.
  2. Set the OpenBoot auto-boot? parameter.
    • true – (Default) The host automatically attempts to boot from the devices specified in boot-device.

    • false – The host does not automatically boot. You can boot manually.

    For example:

    # eeprom auto-boot?=false
  3. Verify the change.
    # eeprom auto-boot?
  4. Reset the host.
    # init 6

    The host resets. After initialization, the host attempts to boot or not based on your configuration.
