Many SMF services are disabled during boot (Doc ID 1017966.1)

Last updated on JUNE 13, 2023

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 and later
All Platforms


In Solaris 10, svc.startd (restarter) starts services during bootup.

When a system boots, svc.startd uses the milestone's FMRI to determine the services to start. Some documentation infer that milestone of multi-user-server is equivalent to run level 3 on previous versions of Solaris, and this can be confusing. The appropriate FMRI to have in order to start all the SMF services during boot is all and not multi-user-server.
