Create a JumpStart Directory

Now that you have the install server and boot server set up, you create a JumpStart directory on server-1. You can use any system on the network. This directory holds files that are required for a custom JumpStart installation of Solaris software. You set up this directory by copying the sample directory from the Solaris Operating System DVD image or from the Solaris Software - 1 CD image that has been copied to /export/install:

server-1# mkdir /jumpstart
server-1# cp -r /export/install/sparc_10/Solaris_10/Misc/jumpstart_sample /jumpstart
