Solaris has a variety of differences with Linux, this being
one of them. The file you want to modify is /etc/default/login,
where you will find the entry below. For great info on securing
Solaris, check out
mozart #head /etc/default/login
#ident "@(#)login.dfl 1.10 99/08/04 SMI" /* SVr4.0 22.214.171.124 */
# Set the TZ environment variable of the shell.
# ULIMIT sets the file size limit for the login. Units are disk blocks.
# The default of zero means no limit.
# If CONSOLE is set, root can only login on that device.
# Comment this line out to allow remote login by root.
