Solaris Express 10/06 Issues

The following issue applies to the Solaris Express 10/06 release.

Keyboard Configuration in JumpStart Must Be Valid

A new sysidkdb tool is introduced in the Solaris Express 10/06 release, which configures the USB keyboard layout during installation. This new tool defines valid keyboard layout strings. Unknown is not a valid string. Therefore, during the JumpStart installation on SPARC systems, the keyboard=Unknown in the sysidcfg script is not valid.

The following error message is displayed:

keyboard=Unknown
Unknown is not a valid keyboard layout

Workaround: Remove the line Keyboard=Unknown from your sysidcfg script. Or, replace Unknown with a valid keyboard string. For more information about the new sysidkbd tool and for information about valid keyword options, see the sysidcfg(4) man page.

For serial keyboards with SPARC systems, omit the keyboard variable in your sysidcfg scripts for SPARC systems.

If a valid keyboard string is not provided in the sysidcfg script, you are prompted for a keyboard selection during the installation.
