Solaris 10 5/08 Installation Guide: Custom JumpStart and Advanced Installations

ProcedureTo Validate the custom_probes File

  1. Verify that the check script is located in the JumpStart directory.

    Note –

    The check script is in the Solaris_10/Misc/jumpstart_sample directory on the Solaris Operating System DVD or on the Solaris Software - 1 CD.

  2. Change to the JumpStart directory.

  3. Run the check script to validate the rules and custom_probes files.

    $ ./check -p path -r file_name
    -p path

    Validates the custom_probes file by using the check script from the Solaris software image for your platform instead of the check script from the system you are using. path is the image on a local disk or a mounted Solaris Operating System DVD or Solaris Software - 1 CD.

    Use this option to run the most recent version of check if your system is running a previous version of Solaris.

    -r file_name

    Specifies a file name other than the one that is named custom_probes. By using the -r option, you can test the validity of a set of functions before integrating the functions into the custom_probes file.

    As the check script runs, the script reports the validity of the rules and custom_probes files and each profile. If no errors are encountered, the script reports: “The custom JumpStart configuration is ok” and creates the rules.ok and custom_probes.ok files in the JumpStart directory.

  4. Determine if the custom_probes.ok file is executable.

    • If yes, go to Step 5.

    • If no, type the following command.

      # chmod +x custom_probes
  5. Ensure that root owns the custom_probes.ok file and that the permissions are set to 755.
