CHAPTER 22 Adding Clients

22.4 JumpStart

To add a client that you want to boot via jumpstart follow the steps below. First copy the install CDROM to disk. In this example that CDROM is copied to /jumpstart/solaris_2_5.

Go to the jumpstart directory and add the client:

cd /jumpstart/solaris_2_5

This updates /etc/bootparams, /etc/ethers, /etc/hosts, & /tftpboot.

./add_install_client -i ip_address -e ethernet_address -s nyssa:/jumpstart/solaris_2_5/export/exec/kvm/sparc.Solaris_2.5 hostname sun4c

If you're running with TCPwrapper enable the client to access in.tftpd by editing /etc/hosts.allow.

If /tftpboot did not exist at boot time run "/etc/init.d/nfs.server start" to enable the server to start /usr/sbin/rpc.bootparamd.

Boot the client from the network:

ok boot net - install
