Applies to:Solaris Operating System - Version 10 10/08 U6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
When booting the system via a serial console:
1. OBP text on the screen is legible
2. when system enters single user mode, screen text is garbled
3. when system enters multiuser mode, the screen text is again legible.
The file /etc/ioctl.syscon has either been edited, or has become corrupted.
