I want to jumpstart a Sparc Netra X1 from an x86 Intel PC using Solaris 9
Posted on 2004-08-17
I'm trying to jumpstart a Sun Netra X1 sparc box using Solaris 9 on an x86 Intel PC. I've seen some guides which i'm following but i get stuck when i try and run ./setup_install_server on the Intel PC as it tells me that the Boot does not exist. This command will run with the x86 CD 1 in however. So how am i possibly supposed to be able to copy over the sparc CD 1 & 2, that will be required to jumpstart the sparc box, to an x86 PC?
I run the following :
mkdir -p /export/install/sparc_9
Using Sparc CD 1 it doesn't work and returns and error of :
Install boot image /cdrom/sol_9_904_sparc/Solaris_9/Tools/Boot does not exist, Check that boot image exists, or use [-t] to specify a valid boot image elsewhere.
Please help, i've got a nice Netra here collecting dust and the only way to make use of it is to install it by jumpstarting it.
Thanks in advance! :-)
