Hi,

Please make sure that tftp entry in /etc/inetd.conf is uncommented. Also, please see:

For me tftp was commented out and inetconv had been run, so the above solution was already completed. However the link provided gave me following syntax wich worked.

# ./add_install_client -e "0:14:4f:fa:95:f0" -p rhank-d:/jumpstart/sol_10_509_sparc -c rhank-d:/jumpstart/sol_10_509_sparc t5240-1s sun4v
enabling network/rpc/bootparams service
updating /etc/bootparams
