Enabling Remote root login Solaris 10.

It is neither recommended nor suggested to allow remote root logins for security reasons.
For Test servers, Non-production servers or other servers, you may want to allow remote root login via SSH.

Usually you get "Access denied" errors when accessing a Solaris server as root when logging on remotely.

You just have to edit two entries in two files.

First:
/etc/default/login

Comment the following line in /etc/default/login by putting a # sign before the line.

 CONSOLE=/dev/console  

This will enable remote root logins to the system.

Second:
/etc/ssh/sshd_config

Comment the following line in /etc/ssh/sshd_config by putting a # sign before the line.

 PermitRootLogin no  

Then add the following line just below the above line.

 PermitRootLogin yes  

This will enable remote SSH and SCP Logins to the system.
