Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) functionality has been added to boot a system over the network in this Solaris release. The previous network boot technology based on RARP/bootparams is still available.
A DHCP server must have been installed and configured in your network before you can use DHCP booting. For information on setting up a DHCP server, see "Configuring DHCP Service" in System Administration Guide, Volume 3.
For information on booting a SPARC based system over the network, see "SPARC: How to Boot a System Over the Network". For information on booting an IA based system over the network, see "IA: How to Boot a System Over the Network".
