      • 15. Re: wanboot using s10u3 and http fails with error 416 with a small(ish) fla
        807559
        Is wan boot compatible with sun4v architecture?
        AFAIK.
        We are using apache 1.3 which is found with the OS
        could that be a problem?
        Lastly is there a size limit to teh flash archive?
        ours is 11 Gigs.
        I reckon those two things are the problem. Apache1.3 is 32-bit,
        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.
            Thanks

              We did switch to Apache2 the problem is now I cannot
              see the flash archive when I access the webserver
              from a browser.
              Not even as a directory listing? Can you see the apache
              test page?

              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.

                Hi,
                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.
                Thanks again.

                  Hi,
                  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.
                  regards.

                    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.

                      807559
                      Hi Friends,

                      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.

                      Regards
                      Nitesh
