Re: Single User Mode and Remote Console

Yes it will.

In fact, the GSP or MP will be accessible even if you turn the system off, as long as the power cords are still connected.

The older models with a GSP may have an actual physical power switch which cannot be turned on by GSP if turned off manually, but with the newer models equipped with a MP it should always be possible to switch the system on remotely.

hi,

the MP/GSP is exactly for this purposse, as Matti already mentioned the GSP/MP will be accessible if you shutdown the server, if the power will be distributed to the power supplies.

Re: Single User Mode and Remote Console

Check "man init". It says that:

S|s
Enter the single-user environment. When this level change occurs, the logical system console /dev/syscon is changed to the terminal from which the command was executed.

This means that if you type "init s" from the terminal pts2 then syscon changed to this terminal.

Man also says that:
Transitioning into run level S from a higher run level does not terminate other system activity and does not result in a "single-user state"; this operation should not be done.
