Solaris 9 Installation Guide

SPARC: Set Up Engineering Systems to Install From the Network

After setting up the /jumpstart directory and files, you use the add_install_client command on the install server, server-1, to set up the engineering systems to install the Solaris 9 software from the install server. server-1 is also the boot server for the engineering group's subnet.

server-1# cd /export/install/sparc_9/Solaris_9/Tools
server-1# ./add_install_client -c server-1:/jumpstart host-eng1 sun4u
server-1# ./add_install_client -c server-1:/jumpstart host-eng2 sun4u

In the add_install_client command, the options that are used have the following meanings:


Specifies the server (server-1) and path (/jumpstart) to the JumpStart directory.


The name of a system in the engineering group. 


The name of another system in the engineering group.  


Specifies the platform group of the systems that use server-1 as an install server. The platform group is for Ultra 5 systems.
