mkdir -p /export/install/sparc_10_606Then put in the first of 5 CDs. It mounts automatically at /cdrom (I wonder how? See /etc/rmmount.conf, Rick).
cd /cdrom/sol_10_606_sparc/s0/Solaris_10/Tools ./setup_install_server /export/install/sparc_10_606 cd eject cdrom0This took 33 minutes.
Then for the other 4 CDs,
cd /cdrom/sol_10_606_sparc_?/Solaris_10/Tools ./add_to_install_server /export/install/sparc_10_606 cd eject cdrom0These only takes about 6 minutes each.
mkdir /jumpstart cp -r /export/install/sparc_10_606/Solaris_10/Misc/jumpstart_sample/* /jumpstart vi /etc/dfs/dfstab and add this line, share -F nfs -o ro,anon=0 /jumpstart shareallThe web page I was following wanted me to "create a profile", so I
cd /jumpstart cp -p any_machine sparc_machineThis is kind of like a kickstart.cfg file, i.e. it describes how I want to install machines.
cd /jumpstart vi rulesComment out all the examples at the bottom of the file, and add this one line
arch sparc && network 192.168.1.0 - sparc_machine -Which says for any machine on my 192.168.1.x network with a SPARC architecture, use the sparc_machine profile created above.
To check these rules,
But before running it, I wanted to see what would get changed when it ran.
BTW, here are some acronyms in that add_install_client script ...
SVR4 = System V Release (or Revision) 4
RARP = Reverse Address Resolution Protocol
touch raj find / -name proc -prune -o -name system -prune -o -name dev -prune -o -type f -newer raj -ls
To add the sol2 machine to get installed,
cd /export/install/sparc_10_606/Solaris_10/Tools ./add_install_client -c sol1:/jumpstart -e 8:0:20:b8:e4:7a sol2 sun4uMy Ultra 60 system is arch is sparc (not i386) and karch (ie, the system's "platform group") is sun4u (not i86pc or prep). Note there's also a rm_install_client in that directory to clean up any mistakes.
That add_install_client produced this output
