    Cool Working an creating an appliance - cant logon to system

    I was working on adding a profile.d script to this server and now I can't log on to the system and run commands. How can I delete the /etc/profile.d/ folder?

    Thanks

    You'll have to connect a monitor and keybaord to the system, then boot in recovery mode. Once at the root prompt type the following command to mount the / partition in read/write mode:

    Code:
    mount -o remount,rw /
    you should now be able to delete any files and directories that you need to.

    Awesome! That worked. I noticed while trying to do other things in recovery mode that it had changed from previous versions and that appeared to be in readonly mode
