Last updated on MAY 06, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software - Version 2.0.0.0.0 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

This note outlines the steps necessary to boot a compute node into single user mode for tasks such as resetting a lost root password, cleaning up bad NFS mount points, fixing operating system files, etc.

** Remember that you will not have most of the normal services in single user mode such as networking as this is a limited environment for access to the filesystem **
