Solaris 2.6 network installation - a problem

Solaris 2.6 network installation - a problem

Post by Muki Hakla » Sat, 15 Aug 1998 04:00:00



Hi,
I've tried to install 2.6 over the network, and encountred the next
problem:
The remote machine start eh boot process, reads from the server the boot
stuff, gives the message that it starts Solaris 2.6 and then the / sign
start to rotate. After a while the machine hang and doesn't continue the
installation. What's wrong?
The server is Ultra 1 and the clients (the ones that I'm trying to
install 2.6 on) are SPARCstation 4. They absolutly start the reboot
process, and clearly start to read the boot files from the CD (I tried
to create a boot server and had the same result).
Thanks in advance

Solaris 2.6 network installation - a problem

Do you have the filesystem exported as follows:

ro,anon=0

I beleive that I saw the exact same thing until I exported anon=0.



 
 
 

1. Solaris 2.6 (sparc) installation problem (minor)

There is an error in the postinstall script for the package SUNWxilmn
on the Solaris 2.6 (sparc) CD.

The error causes four files in the directory /usr/openwin/demo/xil/example2
to have incorrect symbolic links to files in /usr/openwin/demo/xil/example1.

To correct the links, do the following as root:

        cd /usr/openwin/demo/xil/example2
        rm -f brainscan.data.Z brainscan.header example2.c window.c
        ln -s ../example1/brainscan.data.Z brainscan.data.Z
        ln -s ../example1/brainscan.header brainscan.header
        ln -s ../example1/example1.c       example2.c
        ln -s ../example1/window.c         window.c

This fix will not affect removing, installing, or patching SUNWxilmn.
