I am having trouble to get a hands-off jumpstart configuration working
with Solaris 8. I have setup an install and a boot server, taken my
Solaris 7 jumpstart configurations and added some additional sysidcfg
parameters but I am unable to avoid any questions:
(1) ``boot net - install'' tries (unlike Solaris 7) to
install a mini-root onto the local disk and requires
the location of a swap device to be specified.
(2) The mini-root, if booted, recognizes my sysidcfg config
file (specified by bootparamd) according to the log in
/var/sadm/system/logs but still questions everything
and even gives other default values than those found in
(3) After going through the initial questions, a web browser
is fired up.
How to avoid all this mess?
