A customer opened a CRM ticket related to the logic of the following Solaris controls:


  • 1629 - Current listof ports allowing login prompts (getty) / Permissions set for the '/etc/inittab' file
  • 3851 - Current list of ports allowing login prompts (getty)


Currently, these checks return 1 if logins are disabled and 0 if logins are enabled.  On June 21, 2011, we will be reversing the logic such that 0 is Disabled and 1 is Enabled.  Please review your policies after June 21 to verify your settings are correct.
