Summary : Sun T2000 Solaris 10 serial console

Several people responded to the effect that "it shouldn't do that" and
pointed me towards the ALOM manuals - thanks to everyone who responded.

On further testing - with the other admin /not/ working on the server at
the same time - I see that the behavior I was seeing was a result of too
many cooks in the kitchen.

The serial management port is behaving as I'd expected with full access
to the server during state transitions.

Original message edited for brevity

I've got the serial port talking correctly to the Lantronix console

The problem is that when I go from runlevel 3 to single-user the
console-login is disabled by SMF.
