Before You Begin
Ensure that your role has the appropriate rights profiles to perform this procedure. See Using Rights Profiles to Administer Boot Features.
For example, to boot the system to a single-user state, type the following:
ok boot -s
For more information, see the boot(8) man page.
$ who -r . run-level s May 2 07:39 3 0 S
If you are running Oracle Solaris 11 on a system that uses a service processor, after shutting down the system, you must switch from the system console prompt to the service processor prompt. From there, you can stop the service processor, as shown in this example:
$ shutdown -g0 -i0 -y # svc.startd: The system is coming down. Please wait. svc.startd: 91 system services are now being stopped. Jun 12 19:46:57 wgs41-58 syslogd: going down on signal 15 svc.startd: The system is down. syncing file systems...done Program terminated r)eboot o)k prompt, h)alt? $ o ok #. -> -> stop /SYS Are you sure you want to stop /SYS (y/n)? y Stopping /SYS ->
If you need to perform an immediate shutdown, use the stop -force -script /SYS command. Before you type this command, ensure that all data is saved.Example 27 Powering On a System
The following example shows how to power on the system that uses a service processor. You must first be logged in to Oracle ILOM. See https://docs.oracle.com/cd/E81115_01/html/E86148/z40019501400145.html.
If you have a modular system, make sure that you are logged into the desired server module.

To skip confirmation prompts, type start -script /SYS.
