Jumpstart Question

Post by Michae » Tue, 21 Nov 2000 04:00:00



I set up a custom jumpstart server everything works fine except for one thing.
After the clients install and reboots the vfstab has foo:/mount which is
correct. But in the /etc/hosts file I have two entries for that server.

<192.168.1.10>   foo
<192.168.1.10>   192.168.1.10.3.183

When I do a ypwhich it shows the 192.168.1.10.3.183 as the server when it should
be foo.

In my sysidcfg I have:
                       name_service=NIS {domain_name=domain.com
                                         name_server=foo(192.168.1.10)}

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Mike

 
 
 

1. basic JumpStart question

Hi Experts,

I try the following configuration for a network JumpStart installation:

Install-server (host_a) is on the same subnet like the mashine to be
installed (host_b)

On host_a:
Solaris 7 disk copied to /export/jumpstart/sparc_2.7
mkdir /jumpstart
created rules and test_class in /jumpstart

creaded sysidcfg file in /export/jumpstart/sys_host_b
copied check to /jumpstart
checking rules -> ok
The only line in rules.ok is:
any -   -   test_class  -

#  /usr/sbin/install.d/pfinstall -c /export/jumpstart/sparc_2.7 -d
test_class  -> OK
# cd /export/jumpstart/sparc_2.7/Solaris_2.7/Tools
# ./add_install_client -c host_a:/jumpstart -p
host_a:/export/jumpstart/sys_host_b host_b sun4c
/export and /jumpstart are shared ro, anon=0

On host_b:
OK> boot net - install
host_b finds host_a, boots
... System identification is completed.
Starting Solaris installation program ...
Searching for JumpStart directory ...
not found
Warning: Could not found matching rule in rules.ok

Why does host_b not find a JumpStart directory ? Where does it look for it?

Any hint would be appreciated!
