Goal

The following is the current list of available break key sequences for dropping a Sun workstation down to OpenBoot  PROM (OBP).

This is an alternative to powering off the Sun workstation when the machine is hung, and may cause data and kernel corruption. These sequences could also be utilized in troubleshooting efforts.

For further options at the OBP, see 1005946.1 Hardware Diagnostics for Sun Systems: A Toolkit for System Administrators
