x86: Create a Boot Server for Marketing Systems

Systems cannot boot from an install server on a different subnet, so you make server-2 a boot server on the marketing group's subnet. You use the setup_install_server(1M) command to copy the boot software from the Solaris Operating System for x86 Platforms DVD or the 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.

In the setup_install_server command, -b specifies that setup_install_server is to copy the boot information to the directory that is named /export/boot.
