I have an ULTRA SPARC 1 with Solaris 7 running on it. Then I have an
ULTRA SPARC 2 running Solaris 5.6 without CDROM. I am trying to
upgrade it to 7 over the network.
I have made the solaris 7 machine as an install server by running
the add_install_client script. When I try to 'boot net' the machine
that I want to upgrade, it detects the install server correctly.
It also starts reading from the other machine's CDROM. But suddenly,
the machine reboots and there is no way for me to find out what
messages come on the screen becos as soon as there is an error,
the machine reboots automatically. I guess I need really keen
eyes to look at the messages.
Anyway, I have tried to run 'boot net -v' also but it also does
not help me debug the problem.
I have also tried to use a SPARC 5 machine and used it as an install
server but it does the same thing.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
