If your system currently supports diskless clients installed with the AdminSuite 2.3 Diskless Client tool, you must first delete all existing diskless clients prior to installing the Solaris 8 7/01 operating environment. For specific instructions, see “How to Set Up Your Diskless Client Environment” in Solaris 8 System Administration Supplement.
If you attempt to install the Solaris 8 7/01 operating environment over existing diskless clients, the following error message appears.
The Solaris Version (Solaris 7) on slice <xxxxxxxx> cannot be upgraded. There is an unknown problem with the software configuration installed on this disk.
