By default, the Solaris 10 boot is "quiet" on the console.

This behaviour, stemming from the usage of svcadm, can be found annoying by experienced Solaris sysadmins, used to previous versions of the OS.

This behaviour can be changed with svccfg.

Turn on verbose boot logging for Solaris 10

  # /usr/sbin/svccfg -s system/svc/restarter:default
  svc:/system/svc/restarter:default> addpg options application
  svc:/system/svc/restarter:default> setprop options/logging = astring: verbose
  svc:/system/svc/restarter:default> listprop
options/logging            astring  verbose

  svc:/system/svc/restarter:default> exit

Remove verbose Solaris boot logging

  # svccfg -s system/svc/restarter:default
  svc:/system/svc/restarter:default> delpg options
  svc:/system/svc/restarter:default> listprop
  svc:/system/svc/restarter:default> exit

Happy computing.
