Thanks to all who replied.  Here's my original post:

Hi all,

I'm working on setting up backup for my new Solaris boxes.  Is there a
way to script backup to take the system down from init level 3 to
single-user mode and run the ufsdump on /, /var, /usr, and so on?  I
think that root's password for getting into single user mode is stopping
me.  Any help is greatly appreciated.  I will summarize.


The synthesis of all my replies is that I do not need to go down to
single user mode to accomplish my backup.  My only hang up was the
web-server that interacts with a database that resides on the box that I
am wanting to backup.  I'll just take the network interface down while
backup is being run to avoid problems.  Again, thanks to all who
