Startup modes in AIX

Basically there are 4 startup modes in AIX


1. NORMAL MODE : Multiuser mode; All process are running

2. SYSTEM MANAGEMENT SERVICES : it runs from FIRMWARE and sets bootlist; it's not AIX

3. MAINTENANCE : Singer User mode; password recovery and system recovery for the system which can't undergo normal boot.

4. DIAGNOSTICS : AIX diagnostics
