Use the setup_install_server(1M) with the -w option to copy the WAN boot miniroot and the Solaris software image to the /export/install/Solaris_10 directory of wanserver-1.
Insert the Solaris Software media in the media drive that is attached to wanserver-1. Type the following commands.
wanserver-1# mkdir -p /export/install/cdrom0 wanserver-1# cd /cdrom/cdrom0/Solaris_10/Tools wanserver-1# ./setup_install_server -w /export/install/cdrom0/miniroot \ /export/install/cdrom0
Move the WAN boot miniroot to the document root directory (/opt/apache/htdocs/) of the WAN boot server.
wanserver-1# mv /export/install/cdrom0/miniroot/miniroot \ /opt/apache/htdocs/miniroot/miniroot.s10_sparc
Determine that the client OBP supports WAN boot by typing the following command on the client system.
# eeprom | grep network-boot-arguments network-boot-arguments: data not available
In the previous example, the network-boot-arguments: data not available output indicates that the client OBP supports WAN boot.
