I am running Solaris 11 on VMWare Workstation host machine Windows 7. Here is my OS and system details: SunOS solaris 5.11 11.0 i86pc i386 i86pc
I want to boot Solaris 11 in text mode only i.e make it persistently boot in text mode and not boot into GUI. I tried editing menu.lst. My menu.lst is as follows:
default 0 timeout 30 splashimage /boot/grub/splash.xpm.gz foreground 343434 background F7FBFF title Oracle Solaris 11 11/11 bootfs rpool/ROOT/solaris kernel$ /platform/i86pc/kernel/amd64/unix -B $ZFS-BOOTFS,console=text module$ /platform/i86pc/amd64/boot_archive title solaris-backup-1 bootfs rpool/ROOT/solaris-backup-1 kernel$ /platform/i86pc/kernel/amd64/unix -B $ZFS-BOOTFS,console=text module$ /platform/i86pc/amd64/boot_archive
My problem is that when I reboot Solaris 11 it initially shows up with a command line login asking for username, but as I'm typing the username in, it just boots into GUI anyway showing up a GUI login screen. How can I make Solaris persistently boot into text mode. I have tried boot time grub parameter editing and that way doesn't work either.
