Proper sequence to boot from run level 3 to single user mode.
Posted on 2010-11-17
Hi, I was told by my tech lead that if you boot into single user mode from run level 3 usnig init -s
that once you reach single user mode you are not truely in single user mode because there is a bug in the OS.. He said that the only way it should be done is to init 0 and then boot too single user mode from the boot prompt. Has anyone heard of such a bug in the OS or know anything about the bug ? The reason for my concern is that we are trying to automate the patching where once booted into single user mode it will attempt to install the monthly patch cluster and would prefer to boot into single user mode to stream line the automation
