I have new T2000 and want to install Solaris OS but I am not enabled to boot from cdrom. When I run "ok boot cdrom" get following errors -
Rebooting with command: boot cdrom
Boot device: /pci@7c0/pci@0/pci@1/pci@0/ide@8/cdrom@0,0:f File and args:
Can't read disk label.
Can't open disk label package
ERROR: boot-read fail

The alias is good, but the cause of this issue can be multiple.
- The media is bad
- The media is not for SPARC platform
- The DVD drive is defect.
Please check the first two points and if this is not fixed, I think you can try to replace the DVD drive.
Some of the older systems had trouble reading a burned dvd. I was able to open a ticket with Oracle and have them replace the drive. The new drive supported dvd-r and did successfully boot.
Pro tip: open the server and look at the label on the dvd-rom. You can google the drive model number to determine what it's compatible with. You are looking for dvd-r, dvd+r, dvd-rw, dvd+rw compatibility to read burned disks. In my case it supported dvd-rom only, so I ordered a replacement drive and also an OEM Solaris dvd. Problem solved.
