    T1000 & S10 0106

      I'm having all sorts of fun getting a new T1000 to jumpstart using S10 0106. I have SUN4U systems working swell jumpstarting and flash loading S10 0106.

      message overflow on /dev/log minor #5 -- is syslogd(1M) running?

      and it hangs for as long as I have waited.

      Normally at this point it says configuring devices and rolls on...

      I really don't understand yet what the differences are between a SUN4U and SUN4V install. In /tftpboot the inetboot file is different but looking at the staged disks after a setup_install_server where are all the SUN4V files? I have a single jumpstart server with flavors from Solaris 8 on up installed and working.

      Any clue what might be wrong and how I can debug this further?

      boot -v normally shows the problem but not this time.
        • 1. Re: T1000 & S10 0106
          Well I figured it out...

          The -s parameter for ad_install_client needed another level of directory tacked on as this is where the .cdtoc is located.

          Once this crapped out into a # prompt a "mount -p" showed that the /cdrom mount was not mounted correctly.

          We have subdirectories for each release of Solaris.
          • 2. Re: T1000 & S10 0106
            Do you know how to add the sun4v arch into the tftpboot dir. We have just got a t1000 and I cannot add it to the jumpstart because sun4v isn't supported.
            • 3. Re: T1000 & S10 0106
              Unless you're setting up on a boot-only server, you shouldn't use the -s option. 'add_install_client' doesn't need it when it's run on the jumpstart server.
