I refuse to think solaris 10 no virtual consoles I did

svcadm enable svc:/system/console-login:default

nothing happen,no virtual consoles,service remain offline and no error is given if i start the script of this smf service give me this command

/usr/lib/saf/ttymon -g -d /dev/console -l console -m ldterm,ttcompat -h -p solaris10.blu.privata console login:  

and on console i see..no output

of course solaris10.blu.privata is reachable by ping. So..no virtual consoles?Or there is other way?

  • It's not clear what your problem is. Are you not getting any console? What are you expecting? – Andrew Henle Aug 27 '16 at 11:26
  • Simply a virtual console like linux,bsd,ctrl+alt+f4 give me console4 f5 give console5 etc..actualy I cannot see any console. – elbarna Aug 27 '16 at 19:27

Solaris 10 does not have virtual consoles. The were not introduced to Solaris until Solaris 11.

The major customers for Solaris tend to be large-scale enterprises, where the ability to use virtual consoles isn't needed as much as it is for desktop systems.
