Delete a Dynamic X Session

When the GNOME display manager is terminated, all of the dynamic X sessions are deleted.

Note -  The GNOME desktop runs on the X Window System. In this task, the term X session is used generically to identify this environment.

For more information about the /usr/lib/ConsoleKit/dsession command, use the --help option. To learn more about the GNOME desktop and ConsoleKit, see the gdm(1M) and console-kit-daemon(1M) man pages.

You must have the console role (c) and the admin role (a) in Oracle ILOM and administrator privileges on Oracle Solaris to complete this task.

  1. Log in to Oracle ILOM.

    See Log In to Oracle ILOM (CLI).

  2. Start the host console.

    See Start the Host Console.

  3. If necessary, start the host.

    See Start a Host.

  4. If necessary, switch to the root role or other administrator role by using the su command.
  5. At the superuser prompt, display the current dynamic X sessions.
    # /usr/lib/ConsoleKit/dsession --list all
  6. Delete the dynamic X session.
    # /usr/lib/ConsoleKit/dsession --delete device-path

    where device-path is a valid path to a display device.

    You can also delete all of the dynamic X sessions by using the -f|--fini option.
