Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide


The problem lies in the /tftpboot directory of the boot server. Confirm that the HOSTID and HOSTID.ARCH files are linked to the correct inetboot.* file for your architecture. The following is an example of how a symbolic link should look:

# cd /tftpboot
# ls -l 81971904*
81971904 -> inetboot.sun4m.Solaris_2.4
81971904.SUN4M -> inetboot.sun4m.Solaris_2.4
If the entries are not correct, remove the entry for the particular client in this directory, using rm_install_client or rm_client commands, and re-add the client with the add_install_client(1M) or add_client command or through Solstice giving the correct architecture.
