Dear Sun-Managers,

the question:
> I am looking for a way to automate the login procedure.
> After a reboot the user should be logged in automatically, without
> providing his account and password.
> I tried "login user" or "su - user" in the rc3.d scripts
> but without success. I got: "no utmp entry" or "no root shell"
> I suppose there should be a way using ttymon,sacadm,ttyadm and friends...

the answer:

edit /etc/inittab:
remove last line and use:
co:234:once:/usr/bin/su - user >/dev/console </dev/console

Be aware of the security hole.
