non-Openwindows installation of diskless clients on Solaris 2.5

I need to install diskless clients without using
OpenWindows - in Solaris 2.4 this could be done with
ttyhstmgr but this programs gone in 2.5. How do I do
this now? Is there a new program?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes, there is the add_install_client command which you can issue from the command line. I believe that also those programs which you want to avoid because of openwindows (Adminsuite or Admintool e.g.) just collect the information you enter and then use add_install_client to do the job.

By the way, add_install_client is on the Solaris CD ROM in/cdrom/cdrom0/s0.

You may also use setup_install_server which supplies the boot software for the server.

I think that the man pages are quite clear about  the usage of those commands.

Good luck,
