Solaris 10: console login service(s) cannot run

Posted in Solaris at 4:41 pm by alessiodini

today i worked on a Solaris 10 system , on Vmware.

During boot i obtained the follow error:

console login service(s) cannot run

Looking on documents/web i found this solution:

#svcadm milestone -d all

At next reboot i didn’t obtain the error!
With this command the system coming up with “all” as default milestone.

    Hi alessiodini.

    Thanks for the advice! I’d like to add the following: a reboot isn’t necessary. Just log out of the system console you’ve logged in for maintenance and SMF starts the missing services.
