sulogin


NAME
     sulogin - access single-user mode

SYNOPSIS
     sulogin

DESCRIPTION
     The sulogin utility is automatically invoked  by  init  when
     the system is first started. It prompts the user to type the
     root password to enter system maintenance mode  (single-user
     mode)  or  to  type   EOF  (typically  <CTRL-D>)  for normal
     startup (multi-user mode). The user  should  never  directly
     invoke sulogin.

     The sulogin utility can prompt the user to  enter  the  root
     password  on a variable number of serial console devices, in
     addition to the traditional console device. See  consadm(1M)
     and  msglog(7D)  for  a  description  of  how to configure a
     serial device to display the single-user login prompt.

                                             number of seconds to
                                             wait  before   login
                                             failure  is  printed
                                             to  the  screen  and
                                             another        login
                                             attempt is  allowed.
                                             Default     is     4
                                             seconds. Minimum  is
                                             0  seconds.  Maximum
                                             is 5 seconds.
