Telnet to a single user mode server

Telnet to a single user mode server

Telnet to a single user mode server

I would like to take down a T1000,T2000,T5120 into a single user mode.
Since I don't have a console or ALOM to these servers I would like to have a telnet access into the server after its in single user mode.
What do I need to do ?
Is it possible to add more services to the single user mode ?

RE: Telnet to a single user mode server

It is possible to customize the services to get telnet in a particular mode, but the number of services required to get to telnet (*many* network related services) means you will be damn near in multi-user mode anyway, and would not be safe for installing patches which require single user mode.

Look at svcadm (on Solaris 10) you can examine a service and see the dependencies it has to get to a running state. You also have to check the dependencies it requires to ensure each of their dependencies are met.

It is vastly better to get a console or ALOM set up to get this done.

RE: Telnet to a single user mode server

You should look into getting a terminal server like a cyclades or I think cisco makes one.  Really the way to go.
