Server Config

mkdir /jumpstart/sol10-0106; mount /jumpstart
mount /cdromt (sol10) ; cd /cdrom/sol_10_106_sparc/s0/Solaris_10/Tools
./setup_install_server /jumpstart/sol10-0106
mkdir /jumpstart/sol10-0106/Patches
  1. copy Solaris latest cluster files to /jumpstart/sol10-0106/Patches; unzip it
  2. add to /etc/dfs/dfstab share -F nfs -o ro,anon=0 -d “Jumpstart” /jumpstart
  3. run shareall (run share to make sure)
  4. on solarisk10 svcsadm tftpd start
  5. make sure rarp is running if not start it with /usr/sbin/in.rarpd -a

Cleint Config

  1. Create directory /jumpstart/installs/sol10-0910/conf
  2. Crate files in /jumpstart/installs/sol10-0910/conf — rules sysidcfg t1000_profile1

cat rules

hostname client1 - t1000_profile1

cat sysidcfg

network_interface=PRIMARY {netmask= protocol_ipv6=no default_route=}

cat t1000_profile1

  1. Add to /etc/hosts entry for client
    1. Example grep client /etc/hosts
    2. client1
  2. cp /jumpstart/installs/sol10-0910/Solaris_10/Misc/jumpstart_sample/check /jumpstart/installs/sol10-0910/conf/.
    1. Note: Only for new jumpstart installs
  3. run ./check (shuld bulid a rules.ok file)

Note: In my config I had to copy the rules.ok and sysidcfg to /jumpstart/.

  1. On the new client run banner at the ok prompt to get the MAC address t1000 config (up to data)
/jumpstart/installs/sol10-0910/Solaris_10/Tools/add_install_client -e 0:14:4f:2a:82:3c \

  1. on the cleint run boot net – install

Solaris Wan Boot

Install the wanboot jumpstart server

lofiad -a sola10_sparc_u9.iso
mount -F hsfs /dev/lofi/1 /mnt
mkdir -p /waninstall /wanboot/sol10-1009
cd /mnt/Solaris_10/Tools

First install directory – Second wanboot directory

[root@jumpstart] /mnt/Solaris_10/Tools # ./setup_install_server -w /waninstall /wanboot/sol10-1009

WAN boot Image creation complete
        The WAN boot Image file has been placed in
        Ensure that you move this file to a location
        accessible to the web server, and that the
        WAN boot configuration file wanboot.conf(4)
        for each WAN boot client contains the entries:
                        where  is an HTTP or HTTPS URL
                        scheme pointing to the location of the
                        WAN boot CGI program
                        where  is the path and file
                        name, relative to the web server
                        document directory, of 'miniroot'
        You should also make sure you have initialized
        the key generation process by issuing (once):
                # /usr/sbin/wanbootutil keygen -m
Install Server setup complete

If you’re stuck on a network that has no DHCP but you do have a Jumpstart server, you can still successfully install your OS.

The easiest way is to boot your server off a Solaris CD or DVD and make the necessary changes to GRUB on the fly. Choose any of the GRUB boot options and edit it to look like the following:

min_mem64 1024
ifconfig --address=client_address --gateway=client_gateway --mask=client_netmask --server=boot_server_address
root (nd)
kernel$ /I86PC.Solaris_10-1/multiboot kernel/unix -B install_media=boot_server_address:/export/install/media/sol10u9_x86,install_boot=boot_server_address:/export/install/media/sol10u9_x86/boot - nowin install
module$ /I86PC.Solaris_10-1/x86.miniroot
