If an NFS server will be involved in the boot sequence, set it up using the instructions below. For information on selecting NFS to be used in the boot sequence, see Table 2-1. Using NFS as the boot protocol is the fastest method for delivering JavaOS software to the JavaStation computers.
Only experienced Solaris system administrators should set up boot services for JavaStation computers using Solaris commands. Inexperienced Solaris users should use the Netra j software. For information on Netra j, go to http://www.sun.com/netra-j or refer to the Netra j 3.0 Administrator's Guide.
Follow the instructions in the NFS Administration Guide to configure a server on the network as an NFS server.
This guide is available on the Web at http://docs.sun.com.
If a booter file will not be used in the boot process, use dhtadm to set the JavaStation boot protocol to NFS.
Setting the JSBproto vendor-specific option to nfs. See "Vendor-Specific Options" for more information.
Use dhtadm to set Rootpath to the directory on the NFS server where the JavaOS image is located.
Use dhtadm to set BootSrvA to the directory on the NFS server where the JavaOS image is located.
