SubObjective:

Multiple Answer, Multiple Choice

You want to boot a SPARC-based system from the ok prompt. Which three OpenBoot PROM commands could you use? (Choose three.)

A.boot
B.

boot cdrom s
C.

reboot
D.

boot RARP
E. boot sv

Answer:
A. boot
B. boot cdrom s
E. boot sv

Tutorial:
You can use the boot, boot cdrom s , and boot sv commands to boot a SPARC-based system from the ok prompt. The boot command has various options that can be used to boot the system in different situations. When you boot the system from the ok prompt using the boot command, the system boots in the multiuser mode automatically. When you use the boot cdrom s command at the ok prompt, the system boots from the CD-ROM in single-user mode. Using the v option with the boot command boots the system while displaying more detailed information on the console. Usually, this option is used to troubleshoot problems arising during the boot process. You can also use various other options with the v option, such as boot sv, to boot the system in the single-user mode, with the detailed information displayed on the console.

There is no reboot command available at the ok prompt. The reboot command reboots the system while the Solaris OE is running in multiuser mode.

In Solaris OE, there is no boot RARP command for booting the system at the ok prompt or while the Solaris OE is running.
