    solaris 10 single user mode

    user523412
      Hi,

      I had just install a solaris 10 update 9 in the SUN v240. Do i need this same version of update in order for me to run in Single User Mode?
      Or it can do also with the current latest version= solaris 10 update13?

      Thanks,

          If you are asking whether you can boot that system using a CD/DVD of a newer release...
          ... then go do system maintenance tasks...

          Yes, that is perfectly acceptable.


          .
          If you are asking whether you can boot that box using a CD/DVD of a newer release...
          ... then copy files fom that CD/DVD and overwrite existing files...

          No, that would possibly muck up your system and you would have to wipe it and reinstall fresh.

            Hi rukbat,

            Thanks for the reply.

            My point of asking this question is because my senior told me that in order to boot from single user/ maintenance mode, the os require to use the same version of 'Update' when we install the Solaris OS to do the repaire.

            I will take that as an answer.
            Thanks. :)
