Booting a SPARC System From AI Media

You can specify the default AI manifest or a custom AI manifest when you boot the system from the AI media.

Using the Default AI Manifest to Boot a SPARC System From AI Media

To use the default AI manifest that is in the AI boot image, type the following command at the OBP prompt:

ok> boot cdrom - install

The automated installation proceeds, using the specifications in the default manifest.

Using a Custom AI Manifest to Boot a SPARC System From AI Media

To use a custom AI manifest, type the following command at the OBP prompt:

ok> boot cdrom - install aimanifest=prompt

The following prompt displays:

Enter the URL for the AI manifest [HTTP, default]:

Type the URL to your custom manifest. For example, type http://example.com/custom.xml.

The automated installation proceeds, using the specifications in the custom manifest.

Booting a SPARC Image Without Installing

You might want to boot from media but not install. For example, you might want to troubleshoot or examine the system.

To boot the AI image but not start an automated installation, use the following command:

ok> boot cdrom

The system boots and a login panel displays, but the installation does not begin.
