    If STOP-A isn't working, and you can't get to a command line, then I
    believe you must resort to turning the machine off and then on again.

    Just cross your fingers and hope your filesystems don't turn to .

    If the connector where your keyboard plugs into the Sun is
    a round one, then try unplugging the keyboard and plugging
    it back in again.

    If the connector for your keyboard is a USB connector, then
    you'll have to power the computer off.

    The alternate sequence may have been set: Tilde Control-B

    If a local keyboard is normally attached, you might be
    able to get an OK prompt by unplugging it then plugging
    in again.

    Otherwise, power cycle.

    That's "Return Tilde Control-B", but only on serial consoles,
    not on Sun keyboards.

    Or the feature may have been disabled altogether.

    Oh, yeah, I forgot about that. I rarely move keyboards around.

    If the box is hung and "stop a" doesn't work, you're ed. Power cycle.
    Removing the keyboard won't work because all it does is send a "break" to
    the console which is what the "stop a" does.

    No, that's not what Stop-A does. Stop-A sends the keydown and keyup
    messages through the cable to the computer. Unplugging and re-plugging
    the keyboard generates a break signal through the cable.

    The keyboard port hardware handles the unplug/replug even very differently
    than the press of the Stop and the A keys, so unplug/replug can work in
    situations where keypresses don't.

    If our system comes directly into single usermod and init,df,uptime commands are not running.
    it may be a problem with boot disk and we want the ok prompt to boot from the secondary disk.
    Please suggest how we can come at ok prompt.
    note:key board is not connected to system.
