Solaris 7 3/99 Release Notes (Intel Platform Edition)

Using Solaris 7 as an Install Server

If you use Solaris 7 as an install server, you need to modify the Solaris 7 /etc/nsswitch.conf file before you run add_install_client.

  1. Go to this line in the Solaris 7 /etc/nsswitch.conf file:

    hosts: xfn nis [NOTFOUND=return] files
  2. Remove the xfn entry so that the line looks like this:

    hosts: nis [NOTFOUND=return] files 
  3. Run add_install_client from the Solaris 7 3/99 CD.
