[OpenIndiana-discuss] OI boot problem

Excuse the top-posting, I'm on my Blackberry...

I've always found the default solaris reboot and shutdown commands a 'pain in the ass'.

I doubt there are many systems out there that would be broken by an adjustment to the default reboot and shutdown behaviour to bring them more in line with BSD and Linux.

What do others think?

From man reboot:


    The  reboot  utility  does  not  execute  the   scripts   in
     /etc/rcnum.d  or  execute shutdown actions in inittab(4). To
     ensure  a  complete  shutdown  of   system   services,   use
     shutdown(1M) or init(1M) to reboot a Solaris system.

In different words, use init 6,
