I can't see any straightforward way to interrupt boot without changing the milestone. You could make lots of services dependent on a patching service, but that will have a maintenance burden. It also may not play well with 3rd party services. > > patch-install-service might need to > > ms=`svcprop -p options/milestone svc:/system/svc/restarter:default` > svcadm milestone "$ms" Ok. > > if the patches installed don't need a reboot. > > >This approach is also good because an explicit boot to single user WILL NOT > >attempt to install pending patches. > > That would be very nice, but are you sure?

I suppose the patch-test service needs to do nothing if the current milestone is single-user.
