On the install server, use the installadm create-client command to associate a particular client with a particular install service.
The installadm create-client command requires the following information:
MAC address for the client
Name of the install service for the client to use for installation
For x86 clients, you can optionally specify boot properties.
The following example associates the x86 client with MAC address 0:e0:81:5d:bf:e0 with the s11-x86 install service. The DHCP configuration output by this command must be added to the DHCP server. If this DHCP configuration is not done, the client cannot boot the s11-x86 install service.
# installadm create-client -n s11-x86 -e 0:e0:81:5d:bf:e0 No local DHCP configuration found. If not already configured, the following should be added to the DHCP configuration: Boot server IP : 10.80.239.5 Boot file : 0100E0815DBFE0
You can also view the results of the installadm create-client command in the /etc/netboot directory. This listing shows install service files for this client only. Lines in the menu.lstfile are broken for readability.

The following example associates the SPARC client with MAC address 00:14:4f:a7:65:70 with the s11-sparc install service.
# installadm create-client -n s11-sparc -e 00:14:4f:a7:65:70
The DHCP server does not require configuration since the SPARC wanboot-cgi boot file has already been configured by create-service. See Create an AI Install Service.
Use the installadm delete-client command to delete a client from an install service.
# installadm delete-client macaddr
You do not need to specify the service name since a client can be associated with only one install service.
