sulogin(1M)		System Administration Commands		   sulogin(1M)

NAME
       sulogin - access	single-user mode

SYNOPSIS
       sulogin

DESCRIPTION
       The sulogin utility is automatically invoked by init when the system is
       first started. It prompts the user to type the root password  to	 enter
       system  maintenance  mode (single-user mode) or to type	EOF (typically
       <CTRL-D>) for normal startup (multi-user	mode). The user	 should	 never
       directly	invoke sulogin.

       The sulogin utility can prompt the user to enter	the root password on a
       variable	number of serial console devices, in addition  to  the	tradi-
       tional console device. See consadm(1M) and msglog(7D) for a description
       of how to configure a serial device to display  the  single-user	 login
       prompt.

FILES
       /etc/default/sulogin    Default	value  can  be	set  for the following
			       flag:

			       PASSREQ	       Determines if login requires  a
					       password.   Default   is	 PASS-
					       REQ=YES.

       /etc/default/login      Default value can  be  set  for	the  following
			       flag:

			       SLEEPTIME       If  present, sets the number of
					       seconds to  wait	 before	 login
					       failure	 is   printed  to  the
					       screen and  another  login  at-
					       tempt  is allowed. Default is 4
					       seconds.	Minimum	is 0  seconds.
					       Maximum is 5 seconds.

					       Both  su(1M)  and  login(1) are
					       affected	by the value of	SLEEP-
					       TIME.
