We have set up a machine to act as an install server, and via "custom
jumpstart" and a boot floppy can now install Solaris on our x86 systems
So far, so good. However, these machines will at some time all have two
network cards installed (we're currently using 3com 509b's). When we
tried installing onto one of these machines with two network cards in
place, at first all looks well, until it gets to the point of starting
the kernel, where it hangs. Running snoop on a third machine to see what's
going on on the network, we found it hangs after replying "ICMP Time
exceeded (in transit)".
_Is_ it possible to install Solaris 2.4 with two network cards installed?
Or must one always remove the second card during the installation phase?
(We currently use driver update 2; we tried DU 8, but that did not seem
to fix the above problem, it in fact created (other) problems, but we're
not sure yet whether the hardware may have something to do with this...)
