Running the vxexplorer "main.SunOS" or "main.HP-UX" script directly will reboot the system
vxexplorer (aka VRTSexplorer, vxexplore) is a support tool for collecting configuration information on a Solaris and HP-UX system. As documented in the README file, the root user is supposed to run the "VRTSexplorer" command. VRTSexplorer will run the main.SunOS or main.HP-UX script. Do not run these "main.*" scripts directly. They contain the command
$LAST reboot | $HEAD -10 > $outdir/reboot 2>&1
If $LAST is not set, "reboot" will be executed, and the system will reboot without warning. This has been reported as incident 76711, and will be fixed in vxexplorer 1.9.1. The current releases, including 1.9 and 1.8p1, have this problem.
Running "main.SunOS" by itself will cause system to reboot
