Solaris 9 Installation Guide

To Validate the custom_probes File

  1. Verify that the check script is located in the JumpStart directory.

    Note –

    The check script is in the Solaris_9/Misc/jumpstart_sample directory on the Solaris 9 DVD or on the Solaris 9 Software 1 of 2 CD.

  2. Change to the JumpStart directory.

  3. Run the check script to validate the rules and custom_probes files.

    $ ./check [[-p path -r file_name]]

    -p path

    Validates the custom_probes file by using the check script from the Solaris 9 software image for your platform instead of the check script from the system you are using. path is the image on a local disk or a mounted Solaris 9 DVD or Solaris 9 Software 1 of 2 CD.

    Use this option to run the most recent version of check if your system is running a previous version of Solaris.

    -r file_name

    Specifies a file name other than the one that is named custom_probes. By using the -r option, you can test the validity of a set of functions before integrating the functions into the custom_probes file.

    As the check script runs, the script reports the validity of the rules and custom_probes files and each profile. If no errors are encountered, the script reports: “The custom JumpStart configuration is ok” and creates the rules.ok and custom_probes.ok files in the JumpStart directory.

  4. Determine if the custom_probes.ok file is executable.

    • If yes, go to Step 5.

    • If no, type the following command:

      chmod +x custom_probes

  5. Ensure that root owns the custom_probes.ok file and that the permissions are set to 755.
