Setting Secure Shell for Remote Monitoring

Enable remote access to the server so you can connect to it and observe an ongoing installation.

Enabling Remote Access to x86 Clients

For x86 clients, enable remote access on the clients' install service. For example:

$ installadm set-service -n svcname-for-x86 -b livessh=enable

The livessh property is stored in the /etc/netboot/svcname-for-x86/grub.cfg file:

$multiboot $kern /platform/i86pc/kernel/amd64/unix -B livessh=enable,...

Enabling Remote Access to SPARC Clients

For SPARC clients, enable remote access on the service's /etc/netboot/svcname-for-sparc/system.conf file. See lines in bold in the following example:

$ cat /etc/netboot/svcname-for-sparc/system.conf

To enable ssh on SPARC clients individually, specify livessh on the boot command line when you boot the system. See Starting Automatic Installation on Clients.
