This section contains instructions for preparing the SSP for the upgrade. For existing systems, the SSP should already be configured as an install server; therefore, you will only check to ensure that the information is correct. You must install a patch t update the OBP on the SSP, and you must set up the SSP as a boot server for all Enterprise 10000 domains.
For existing machines, the SSP should already be configured as an install server; however, to ensure that the information is correct, perform the following steps:
Log in to the SSP as superuser.
Ensure that the Enterprise 10000 host name and host-name IP address are correct in the /etc/hosts file.
Ensure that the Enterprise 10000 host name and Ethernet address are correct in the /etc/ethers file.
Before you can install Solaris 7 on a domain, you must update the OBP on the SSP by performing the following steps:
Back out PatchID 105848-02 if you installed it during the Solaris 7 Beta-Refresh period.
Insert the Sun Computer Systems Supplement CD into the CD-ROM drive.
ssp# cd /cdrom/cdrom0/Patches/105684-03
ssp# ./installpatch .
ssp# cd / ssp# eject cdrom
Perform this procedure for each domain on which the Solaris 7 will be loaded.
Insert the Solaris CD disk.
The Volume Manager takes about one minute to mount the CD-ROM.
ssp# cd /cdrom/cdrom0/s0/Solaris_2.7/Tools
ssp# ./add_install_client domain_name sun4u
prom_panic: Could not mount filesystem
Exit the superuser level.
