Problems With Setting Up Network Installations

Unknown client “host_name

Cause: The host_name argument in the add_install_client command is not a host in the naming service.

Solution: Add the host host_name to the naming service and execute the add_install_client command again.

Error: <system name> does not exist in the NIS ethers map

Add it, and rerun the add_install_client command

Description: When you run the add_install_client command, the command fails with the above error.

Cause: The client you are adding to the install server does not exist in the server's /etc/ethers file.

Solution: Add the needed information to the /etc/ethers file on the install server and run the add_install_client command again.

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Note - Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. On the client, find the ethers address.

    # ifconfig -a grep ethers
    ether 8:0:20:b3:39:1d
  3. On the install server, open the /etc/ethers file in an editor. Add the address to the list.

  4. On the client, run add_install_client again as in this example.

    # ./add_install_client bluegill sun4u
