How to Set Up Login Services on Auxiliary Terminals

For terminals that are connected to /dev/term/a or /dev/term/b serial ports on a system, predefined services are provided.

  1. Become an administrator.

    See Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.4.

  2. Enable the service instance.

    For example, to enable login services for /dev/term/a:

    # svcadm enable svc:/system/console-login:terma
  3. Check that the service is online.
    # svcs svc:/system/console-login:terma

    The output should show that the service is online. If the service is in maintenance mode, consult the service's log file for further details.
