cleaning up preexisting install client "0:19:D1:7B:BB:32"
To disable 0:19:D1:7B:BB:32 in the DHCP server,
remove the entry with Client ID 010019D17BBB32

If not already configured, enable PXE boot by creating

a macro named 010019D17BBB32 with:
Boot server IP (BootSrvA) : ip-addr-for-server
Boot file (BootFile) : 010019D17BBB32

syntax of ./add_install_client

-d = specify dhcp client

-e = specify the ethernet add' of the system to be installed

-s server_name:path = Specify the name of the server and the absolute path of the Solaris installation
image that is used for this installation. path is either the path to a mounted Solaris installation media
or a path to a directory with a copy of the Solaris installation media.

-c server_name:path = this option is required only to specify a JumpStart directory for a custom
JumpStart installation. server_name is the host name of the server with a JumpStart directory. path is
the absolute path to the JumpStart directory.

-p server_name: path = this option is used to specify the NFS or ZFS shared directory that contains the
user-defined sysidcfg file. When a client is booted, it attempts to read a file specifically named sysidcfg
in this directory to obtain answers to the system and network identification questions. server_name is
either a valid host name or IP address. path is the absolute pathname of the directory on the file server
that contains the sysidcfg file.

Add – install dhcp in this file.
