x86: Create a Boot Server for Marketing Systems

Systems cannot boot from an install server on a different subnet, so server-2 must be a boot server on the marketing group's subnet. Use the setup_install_server(1M) command to copy the boot software from the Oracle Solaris Operating System for x86 Platforms DVD or the Oracle Solaris Software for x86 Platforms - 1 CD. The boot software is copied to the server-2 local disk in the /export/boot directory.

Choose the media and install the boot software to local disk. With the CD or DVD inserted into the drive that is attached to server-2, you would issue the following commands:

server-2# cd /mymountpoint/Solaris_10/Tools
server-2# ./setup_install_server -b /export/boot

The -b specifies that setup_install_server is to copy the boot information to the /export/boot directory.
