Share the JumpStart Directory

To make the rules file and profiles accessible to systems on the network, you share the /jumpstart directory.

Use either the sharemgr utility or the share command as follows:

Note - Starting with the 5/07 Developer release, the sharemgr utility introduces the concept of share groups. See sharemgr Command in System Administration Guide: Network Services.

  • Using the share command, edit the /etc/dfs/dfstab file by adding the following entry.

    # share -F nfs -o ro,anon=0 jumpstart_dir_path

    For example, the following entry shares the /jumpstart directory:

    # share -F nfs -o ro,anon=0 /jumpstart

    Then, type shareall and press Enter.

  • Using the sharemgr utility, enter the following commands:

    # sharemgr add-share -s /jumpstart default

    # sharemgr set -P nfs -S sys -p ro="*" -s /jumpstart default

    # sharemgr set -P nfs -p anon=0 -s /jumpstart default
