SPARC: How to Boot a System From the Network

Before You Begin

  1. Assume the root role.

    See Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.3.

  2. If necessary, bring the system to the ok PROM prompt.
    # init 0
  3. Boot the system from the network without using the ”install ”flag.
    ok boot net:dhcp

    Note -  If you have changed the PROM setting to boot with DHCP by default, you only have to specify boot net, as shown here:
    ok boot net
