INIT(8) 			     System Manager's Manual				  INIT(8)

NAME
       init - initialize machine upon booting

SYNOPSIS
       /$cputype/init [ -ctm ] [ command ...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       Init initializes the machine: it establishes the name space (see namespace(4) and newns in
       auth(2)), and environment (see env(3)) and starts a shell (rc(1)) on the  console.   If	a
       command	is supplied, that is run instead of the shell.	On a CPU server the invoked shell
       runs cpurc(8) before accepting commands on the console; on a terminal, it runs termrc  and
       then  the user's profile.  Options -t (terminal) and -c (CPU) force the behavior to corre-
       spond to the specified service class.  Otherwise init uses the value  of  the  environment
       variable $service to decide the service class.

       Init  sets environment variables $service (either to the incoming value or according to -t
       or -c), $objtype (to the value of $cputype), $user  (to	the  contents  of  #c/user),  and
       $timezone (to the contents of /adm/timezone/local).

       With  option -m init starts only an interactive shell regardless of the command or service
       class.

       On a CPU server, init requires the machine's password to be supplied before starting rc on
       the console.

       Init is invoked by boot(8), which sets the arguments as appropriate.
