booting up but the system was waiting for user interaction at console

Hi all,

My ssytem is mounted on a rack and not connected with any console. When I rebooted it remotely, it didn't go thru the bootup process. when I connect my laptop to the system locally and found that it was waiting for user interaction. Do you know how to disable it, so that it will boot directly to init 3 without any user interaction is required? Thanks a lot.
