Hello,

we can boot our SLE11 systems to a non-default runlevels via "boot options" parameter. 98
similar option is missing in SLE 12, and one have to press "E" then append the "target" on linux/kernel line.

My question here the old(nice/fancy) option to boot in different runlevel/target is not available in SLE 12, or am I missing something, please guide.

Hi
The change from sysvinit to systemd and to grub2 ;)

AFAIK, at present you need to edit as you discovered...

You can set the target for the next reboot via;


systemctl set-default multi-user.target (runlevel 3)
systemctl set-default graphical.target (runlevel 5)


Or use the isolate systemd option to switch.
