cvcd - virtual console daemon




The virtual console daemon, cvcd, is a server process that supports the network console provided on some platforms. The cvcd daemon accepts network console connections from a remote host (only one host at any given time). Console input is read from this connection and forwarded to cvc(7D) by way of cvcredir(7D). Similarly, console output is read from cvcredir(7D) and for- warded across the network console connection. If cvcd dies, console traffic is automatically rerouted through an inter- nal hardware interface. The cvcd daemon normally starts at system boot time. Each domain supports only one cvcd process at a time. Caution: On Sun Enterprise 10000 domains, cvcd uses a confi- guration file (/etc/ssphostname) to determine the name of the host from which network console connections are allowed. If the remote console host is renamed, you must edit the configuration file to reflect that change.


The following operands are supported: platform_name The official Sun platform name used in packaging and code. For example, for Sun Fire 15000 servers, the platform_name would be SUNW,Sun-Fire-15000.
