After you have completed the configuration worksheet, use the following procedure to configure the preinstalled Oracle Solaris software.
-> start /SP/console
Are you sure you want to start /SP/console (y/n)? y
Serial console started.
The GRUB menu appears.
From the GRUB menu (GRUB Menu Screen for Preinstalled Oracle Solaris), you can choose whether you want to continue to direct the display to the serial port, or whether you want to direct the display to a device connected to the video port.
Figure 6-1 GRUB Menu Screen for Preinstalled Oracle Solaris
Solaris 10 10/09 s10x_u8wos_u08a X86 - Serial Port (tty)
Solaris 10 10/09 s10x_u8wos_u08a X86 - Graphics Adapter
If you choose to display output to the video port, you must connect a device to the VGA connector on the server and then complete the configuration from that device. See Chapter 3, Attaching Cables and Power Cords for information about attaching devices to the server.
Note - By default, the system displays the output to the serial port. If you do not select an option on the GRUB menu, after 10 seconds, the GRUB menu is no longer available, and the system continues with the output directed to the serial port.
Use the information gathered in Configuration Worksheet to help you enter the system and network information as you are prompted.
The screens that are displayed will vary, depending on the method that you chose for assigning network information to the server (DHCP or static IP address).
After you have entered the system configuration information, the server completes the boot process and displays the Oracle Solaris login prompt.
