After runing solaris 11 sys-unconfig command the system rebooted and did not started the configuration wizard as on solaris 10.
Instead, it prompted a console login look like this:
 sol11And when I tried to login as root it said the error in the screenshot "empty password not allowed for root from localhost"

How can I fix it?

Thanks,
