Chapter 7

Managing Diskless Clients (Tasks)

This chapter describes how to manage diskless clients in the Oracle Solaris OS.

Note - You cannot use the smosservice and the smdiskless commands on systems that have an Oracle Solaris ZFS root file system installed. This is a known issue with all Solaris releases that support the installation of a ZFS root file system.

You can quickly provision systems that run a UFS root file system or a ZFS root file system by using the Solaris Flash installation feature. For more information, see Installing a ZFS Root File System (Oracle Solaris Flash Archive Installation) in Oracle Solaris ZFS Administration Guide.

The following is a list of the information that is in this chapter:

For overview information on managing diskless clients, see Chapter 6, Managing Client-Server Support (Overview).
