We have an Ultra 45 with Solaris 10 installed on it (one zone, the default one). After changing the IP/YP settings to get it to work in a new location it worked for a while and then failed to boot.
So I decided to reinstall the OS with a version 10 DVD and CD. In each case "boot cdrom" gets me to the same question in Openboot:
Enter filename [kernel/sparcv9/unix]
Preceeded by "cannot find the above file".
Can someone please help me with how to blank out the filename - so that it will boot the CD/DVD into installation menu?
Thanks in advance.
you are trying to boot from a DVD with an older release that lacks the required kernel.
Use a media of "Minimum Supported Operating Environment Version" Solaris 10 HW 1/06 (Update 1) or later. Solaris 10 HW 1/06 was pre-installed on the Ultra 45.
I would suggest that you install the most recent release Solaris 10 10/09 (Update 8).
