Problems With Setting Up Network Installations
Unknown client “host_name”
The host_name argument in the add_install_client command is not a host in the naming
Add the host host_name to the naming service and run the add_install_client
Error: <system name> does not exist in the NIS ethers map
Add it, and rerun the add_install_client command
When you run the add_install_client command, the command fails with the above error.
The client you are adding to the install server does not exist in
the server's /etc/ethers file.
Add the needed information to the /etc/ethers file on the install server
and run the add_install_client command again.
Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.
On the client, find the ethers address.
# ifconfig -a grep ethers
On the install server, open the /etc/ethers file in an editor. Add the address to the list.
On the client, run add_install_client again as in this example.
# ./add_install_client bluegill sun4u
