Solaris 7 Sun Hardware Platform Guide

Setting Up the SSP As a Boot Server

Perform these instructions for each domain on which the Solaris operating environment will be installed.

  1. Insert the Solaris CD into the CD-ROM drive.

    After inserting the CD, wait about one minute for the Volume Manager to mount the CD-ROM.

  2. Change to the /Tools directory on the CD:

    ssp# cd /cdrom/cdrom0/s0/Solaris_2.7/Tools

  3. Set up the host domain as an install client:

    ssp# ./add_install_client domain_name sun4u

    The add_install_client command should share the CD across the net. If you receive the following warning, perform the share(1M) command in Step 3a.

    prom_panic: Could not mount filesystem

    1. Share the CD across the net:

      ssp# share -F nfs -o ro,anon=0 /cdrom/cdrom0/s0

  4. Exit the superuser level.
