Is wan boot compatible with sun4v architecture?AFAIK.
We are using apache 1.3 which is found with the OSI reckon those two things are the problem. Apache1.3 is 32-bit,
could that be a problem?
Lastly is there a size limit to teh flash archive?
ours is 11 Gigs.
so the max. supported filesize is 2Gb. Apache trying to read a 64-bit
filesize is very likely to return either an apparently random number or -1.
The fix is to use Apache 2, which is included with Solaris 10.
Its directory is /var/apache2, and the start/stop mechanism has been
brought under SMF, so you'll need to
svcadm enable svc:/network/http:apache2
start it, instead of running an init script.
Ensure Apache1.3 is switched off first! :-)
To isolate the problem, of course, you could always try to create a mini-flar
by manually installing a SUNWCrnet machine, creating a flar from that, and
seeing if it installs ok w/ Apache 1.3.
Thankyou for the prompt replies.
We did switch to Apache2 the problem is now I cannot see the flash archive when I access the webserver from a browser.
We'll try to make the flash archive smaller and see the results.
We did switch to Apache2 the problem is now I cannotNot even as a directory listing? Can you see the apache
see the flash archive when I access the webserver
from a browser.
Apache2 has its own httpd.conf, but I can't remember the
precise path to it. /etc/httpd2-example.conf?
You probably know that. Try allowing index listings, and see
if the flar shows up then.
Thanks for the tip about Apache 2.
There is a file size limit in Apache 1 for transfer. We switched to Apache 2 and it worked. Initially we hadn't configured it correctly thats why we were having problems.
For the record: wanboot works with sun4v architecture and an apache2 webserver of 32-bit build.
In fact we used the apache2 bundled with Solaris 10.
We have one last problem. We intend to install multiple clients of different architectures on different subnets. The wanboot.conf file can only be read in our scenario if we save it in the /etc/netboot directory. If we save the file in, for instance, /etc/netboot/192.168.198.0/01001446788910, it cannot be read. We need to be able to save the file on this path so that we can install multiple clients at the same time.
Lastly do we have to use the MAC address as the client ID or can it be any other random number.
Anyone using Solaris8 platform for Jumpstart server?
We are trying to do wanboot of a sun4v client. Jumpstart server is S8. Getting this error from error_log of http server. It looks for a specific library.

Did any one face issues with sysidcfg file not gettting configured when the client wanboot.
Is is on Solaris 10 update 4 , the client boot in interactive mode and once i provide the inputs picks up the profile file stored at the same location on the wanboot server.
