Here's a challenging question for all you Solaris x86 gurus out there...
(If there are any out there ;-) )
bootconf.exe is the "configuration assistant" on the Solaris x86 2.6
installation boot floppy.
Can anyone tell me how bootconf.exe mounts the root file system on a CD?
We've created a CD with a UFS root file system and proper VTOC/disk label,
but bootconf.exe fails to mount the root file system.
We can mount the file system just fine under a system running solaris 2.6
x86, and a prtvtoc command shows everything as we expect. In fact the
volume manager mounts it automatically.
I guess what I really need to know is the process bootconf.exe goes through
to mount the root file system off the CD as it must be different than what a
running Solaris 2.6 system does since that works fine.
Please respond via email also and remove the nospam from the email address.
