Power Single user mode

Your Unix Version?..

Just to share i'm using unix 5.1b on My HP DS15 Alpha Server.
To boot single user mode:

Open a session as root, and shutdown the system with the following command:

# shutdown h now

Boot now the system in single-user mode with the following firmware command:

>>> boot fl s

====================

I'm not sure if it helps...

Hi,

From what i remember of an HP9000 (K) running hp11.00:
- interrupt the boot process by pressing any key (when asked)
- type bo pri (BOot PRImary path)
- reply No when prompted to interact with IPL
- at ISL prompt, fire the single user mode by: hpux -is

There are lots of docs about that just use the search option here or you might google as well
Good luck

Understand it like this---

suppose you have to build your application or have to compile a big code that will take plenty of time.

put the commands to compile or build the code,then press ctrl-Z,this will take you to background and the process will stop.

if you put a command --
jobs -l

it will show you the job number of the commands in the background,if there is only one command in the background then put only bg at the command prompt it will start the process in the background.or if there are multiple jobs running then put the job numbers associated with the command which you want to run in background.
Meanwhile you can The window is for you,you can do so many things there.

If you want to take your jobs again running in the main window put fg wioth the job number.Make a try of all this and let me know any doubts.

Thanks
Namish
