Create the WAN Boot Miniroot
Use the setup_install_server(1M) with the -w option to copy the WAN boot miniroot
and the Solaris software image to the /export/install/Solaris_11 directory of wanserver-1.
Insert the Solaris Software media in the media drive that is attached to
wanserver-1. Type the following commands.
wanserver-1# mkdir -p /export/install/cdrom0
wanserver-1# cd /cdrom/cdrom0/s0/Solaris_11/Tools
wanserver-1# ./setup_install_server -w /export/install/cdrom0/miniroot \
Move the WAN boot miniroot to the document root directory (/opt/apache/htdocs/) of
the WAN boot server.
wanserver-1# mv /export/install/cdrom0/miniroot/miniroot \
Check the Client OBP for WAN Boot Support
Determine that the client OBP supports WAN boot by typing the following command
on the client system.
# eeprom | grep network-boot-arguments
network-boot-arguments: data not available
In the previous example, the network-boot-arguments: data not available output indicates that the client OBP
supports WAN boot.
