Solaris 7 Sun Hardware Platform Guide

Updating the OpenBoot(TM) PROM

Before you can install Solaris 7 on a domain, you need to update the OBP on the SSP by performing the following steps:

  1. Insert the Sun Computer Systems Supplement CD into the CD-ROM drive.

    After inserting the CD, wait about one minute for the Volume Manager to mount the CD-ROM.

  2. Log in to the SSP as superuser if you skipped the previous section.

  3. Change to the 105684-04 patch directory on the CD:

    ssp# cd /cdrom/cdrom0/Patches/105684-04

  4. Install the patch:

    ssp# ./installpatch .

  5. Remove the CD:

    ssp# cd /
    ssp# eject cdrom
