jumpstart boot feature

1. Jumpstart boot server - Clients don't boot.

Hi there everyone,

I have a boot server on one subnet and a bootserver/jumstart server on
another.

bootserver/jumstart   =  jumper
boot server = chiguay  (setup_install_server -b used).
Software is Solaris 9 8/03.

Clients can boot/jumpstart off jumper, so all is well.

Clients are unable to boot off the bootserver chiguay.

rpc.bootparamd and xxx are running.

add_install_client -e 0:3:ba:x:x:x:x -s jumper:/export/install test32 sun4u
Same command I used on  jumper.

There are entries in /tftpboot and its uncommented in inetd.conf,
/etc/bootparams and /etc/hosts are updated correctly.

/etc/bootparams:

install=jumper:/export
/install boottype=:in   rootopts=:rsize=32768

chiguay's arp tables have no mapping for the new host.

The host is on the network.  I installed it aforehand with a test IP and
could ping both the router and the boot server.  Next I ran boot -net
install:
The SunFire v210 times out waiting for an r/arp packet.  The network guys
say that there is nowt wrong with the network.

Any thoughts?
