Login as a root to the machine where we have to dump the jumpstart
installatin image

# mkdir /export/install
in this dir copy the cd/dvd image . Command is….
#cd /cdrom/cdrom0/s0/Solaris_10/Tools
#./setup_install_server /export/install

This will take min 1hr 30 min to copy the image from media.
Then create the config dir under /export
#mkdir /export/config

share the /export/install and /export/config
#vi /etc/dfs/dfstab
share –F nfs -o ro,anon=0 /export/install
share –F nfs -o ro,anon=0 /export/config

start the nfs service.
#/etc/init.d/nfs.d/nfs.server start
check with the command

it should show the /export/install and /export/config

if it is not showing , then stop the nfs service and start it again
#/etc/init.d/nfs.d/nfs.server stop
#/etc/init.d/nfs.d/nfs.server start

# vi /export/config/sysidcfg
root_password=encoded from /etc/shadow
above default_route= ip address of jumpstart server’s .

#vi /export/config/rules
hostname t1000 – profile1 –
above hostname t1000 is the hostname of client machine.

#vi /export/config/profile1
install_type initial_install
system_type standalone
partitioning explicit
filesys c0t0d0s0 10000 /
filesys c0t0d0s1 8000 swap
filesys c0t0d0s2 5000 /opt
cluster SUNWCall
above no of partition can be increase or decrease depends upon the
customer requirement. But entry format will be same.
Eg. Filesys c0t0d0s3 5000 /var
get the client machine’s HDD information eg. C0t0d0 or
c0t1d0 etc.

# cd /export/install/Solaris_10/Misc/jumpstart_sample
#cp check /export/config
#cd /export/config

we should get jumpstart configuration ok. Message
as well as ./check script will create rules.ok entry in

#vi /etc/hosts serverhostname clienthostname

#vi /etc/ethers
0:14:4f:2c:db:ae clienthostname
0:14:4f:2c:db:ae is the client machine MAC address.

#cd /export/install/Solaris_10/Tool
#./add_install_client –c serverthostname:/export/config –p
serverhostname:/export/config clienthostname sun4v

note: sun4v is the type of architecture of the client machine
it depends on the machine architecture.

Then go to ok promp on clinet machine and type
Ok boot net
And select the required option step by step
