Perform the following tasks before you create DHCP macros for your installation.
Add the clients that you want to install with DHCP as install clients of your network installation server. For information about how to add a client to an install server, see Chapter 4, Installing From the Network (Overview).
Configure your DHCP server. If you have not configured your DHCP server, see Chapter 13, Planning for DHCP Service (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: IP Services.
Create the DHCP options that you want to use in your macro. For instructions about how to create DHCP options, see How to Create Options to Support Solaris Installation (DHCP Manager).
Select the Macros tab in DHCP Manager.
Choose Create from the Edit menu.
The Create Macro panel opens.
Type the name of a macro.
See Table 3–5 for macro names you might use.
Click the Select button.
The Select Option panel opens.
Select Vendor in the Category list.
The Vendor options you created are listed.
Select an option you want to add to the macro and click OK.
Type a value for the option.
To include another macro, type Include as the option name and type the macro name as the option value.
Click OK when the macro is complete.
If you plan to use DHCP in an installation over the network, you need to set up an installation server and add the system as an installation client. For more information, see Chapter 4, Installing From the Network (Overview).
If you plan to use DHCP in a WAN boot installation, you need to perform additional tasks. For more information, see Chapter 9, WAN Boot (Overview).
If you plan to use DHCP in a custom JumpStart installation, you need to create a profile and a rules.ok file. For more information, see Chapter 2, Custom JumpStart (Overview), in Solaris 10 5/08 Installation Guide: Custom JumpStart and Advanced Installations.
For more information about DHCP, see Part III, DHCP, in System Administration Guide: IP Services.
