 sys-unconfig (System won't reboot) Solaris 9
I ran sys-unconfig. It brought me to the Ok prompt. Typed 'boot' and
reconfigured for DHCP and everything is fine except for when I shutdown and
reboot it comes up to the Ok prompt. How do I get it to automatically boot
up normally, instead of typing in 'boot' to bring up the system.
Any suggestions?

not knowing wether this applies for all sparc machines, but my ss5 has
a flag called autoboot in the boot monitor. so type help at the ok
prompt and look around...

maybe somebody else knows by heart how to do it, i'm too lazy to fire
up the box.

log in as root and type

eeprom auto-boot?

if it says false your system isnt configured to automatically boot.  To
change it type

eeprom auto-boot?=true

Your right. Currently its set at auto-boot?=false. I will change it to true
and will reboot it later.
