SPARC: Set Up Engineering Systems to Install From the Network
After setting up the /jumpstart directory and files, you use the add_install_client command on
the install server, server-1, to set up the engineering systems to install
the Solaris software from the install server. server-1 is also the boot server
for the engineering group's subnet.
server-1# cd /export/install/sparc_11/Solaris_11/Tools
server-1# ./add_install_client -c server-1:/jumpstart host-eng1 sun4u
server-1# ./add_install_client -c server-1:/jumpstart host-eng2 sun4u
In the add_install_client command, the options that are used have the following meanings:
Specifies the server (server-1) and path (/jumpstart) to the JumpStart directory. Use this option if you are using NFS.
Note - If you are not using NFS, you specify the path to the JumpStart directory by using the following commands:
For SPARC based systems, specify the path in the boot command
For x86 based systems, specify the path by editing the GRUB menu entry
The name of a system in the engineering group.
The name of another system in the engineering group.
Specifies the platform group of the systems that use server-1 as an install server. The platform group is for Ultra 5 systems.
