SPARC: Booting a System From the Network

    You might need to boot a system from the network for the following reasons:

  • To install Oracle Solaris

  • For recovery purposes

The network configuration boot strategy that is used in Oracle Solaris is the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).

For general information about how DHCP works in this Oracle Solaris release and specific information about setting up a DHCP server, see Working With DHCP in Oracle Solaris 11.3.
