The system does not boot.
When initially setting up a custom JumpStart server, you might encounter boot problems that do not return an error message. To verify information about the system and how the system is booting, run the boot command with the -v option. When you use the -v option, the boot command displays verbose debugging information on the screen.
If this flag is not given, the messages are still printed, but the output is directed to the system logfile. For more information, see syslogd(1M).
At the ok prompt, type the following: ok boot net -v - install.
