sysidcfg name_service parameter

I have jumpstart working and completely automated.  Except, It still prompts me to confirm DNS settings I've entered.  It says:

"The Name Server information entered is incorrect"  
1: Accept
2: Reject (i think)

I hit 1, and the install continues all by itself.  I want to get rid of this prompt (my sysidcfg LOOKS fine..)

My sysidcfg looks like this:
name_service=DNS {domain_name=domain.com

Any ideas?

Solaris 10....

I remember we had a simiar problem with a Version of Solaris 9.

The solution there was that the machine you are just jumpstarting must be resolvable by the DNS you specify (i.e. machine.domain.com must resolve to the IP and possibly also IP must resolve to machine.domain.com)

My Solaris 10 JS-Server so far don't use DNS... so can't say for sure if that is the problem there too, but I think it's worth trying.

This problem has been rectified.

Turned out I was still poiinting the Boot location in the /etc/bootparams file to Solaris 9, while the install was pointing to Solaris 10.

Thanks anyway.
