Transitioning From Oracle® Solaris 10 to Oracle Solaris 11.3

Exit Print View

Updated: December 2018

System Console and Terminal Services Changes

The sac command and the Service Access Facility (SAF) program are no longer supported. The system console and locally connected terminal devices are represented as instances of the console-login SMF service. 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:

  • svc:/system/console-login:terma

  • svc:/system/console-login:termb

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. See Chapter 5, Managing the System Console, Terminal Devices, and Power Services in Managing System Information, Processes, and Performance in Oracle Solaris 11.3.
