LDOM Jumpstart

Argh!

I have a working jumpstart server (tested against plenty of servers). For some reason my LDOM won't jumpstart, it begins ok but hangs after 'Reading ZFS config: done.'

If anyone has ever seen this behaviour or has any ideas I'd sure appreciate it. It's taken me an age to get the LDOM to even boot to the jumpstart server.

Apologies for the long code sections, I wanted to include the relevant sections to my problem (config profile and ldom boot output).

This is the profile I use for it:
# cat LDOM-profile-zfs 
install_type initial_install
cluster SUNWCall

filesys c0t0d0s1 1000 swap

filesys c0t0d0s5 1000 /opt

And the output at LDOM boot time is this:

Doing a snoop on the jumpstart server shows a trickle of network traffic (small intermittent blips) from this point on.

Thanks for reading and/or any advice, I really can't think of what else is required.
