Solstice DiskSuite 4.2.1 Installation and Product Notes

How to Prepare for Remote Installation

  1. On the remote machine, insert the CD containing the software into the CD-ROM drive.

    If necessary, insert the CD into a caddy first.

  2. Put a line similar to one of the following into the /etc/dfs/dfstab file.

    share -F nfs -o ro -d "CD-ROM Directory" /cdrom/cdrom0/products

    This line may be different, depending on how your system is networked.

  3. Export the /cdrom/cdrom0/ directory with the shareall command.

    remote# shareall 
  4. On the local machine, log in as root.

  5. Create the directory /cdrom/cdrom0/ (if it doesn't already exist).

    local# mkdir -p /cdrom/cdrom0/

    You may choose another directory besides /cdrom/cdrom0/.

  6. Mount the CD-ROM as follows.

    local# mount remote_machinename:/cdrom/cdrom0/ /cdrom/cdrom0/ 

    Change to the /cdrom/cdrom0/products/DiskSuite_4.2.1 directory.

    local# cd /cdrom/cdrom0/products/DiskSuite_4.2.1/`uname -p`

    uname with the -p option places you in the directory that contains the correct version of DiskSuite for your architecture (either sparc or i386).

    You are now ready to install Solstice DiskSuite 4.2.1.
