Solaris 10 10/08 Release Notes

OpenBoot PROM Variables

Before you issue the boot net command from the OpenBoot PROM prompt (OK), verify that the local-mac-address? variable is set to false. This setting is the factory default setting. If the variable is set to true, you must ensure that this value is an appropriate local configuration.

Caution – Caution –

A local-mac-address? that is set to true might prevent the domain from successfully booting over the network.

In a netcon window, you can use the following command at the OpenBoot PROM prompt to display the values of the OpenBoot PROM variables:

OK printenv

To reset the local-mac-address? variable to the default setting. use the setenv command:

OK setenv local-mac-address? false
