7 :: Solaris Server is not running in multi level? Continuously restarting after installing the package?

While installing the package, use pkgadd -d <package name>
this will have impact only in running state once you resated
the system will be back to normal state as it was before
installing a package.

If no error is generated use pkgadd <package name>

Also you can use ok prompt or EEPROM to set the environment
variable auto-boot?=false.This will prevent the automatic
reboot of systems
