Solaris

1. IF CLIENT to be installed and INSTALL server are on the same subnet, you simply create an ‘INSTALL server’. Otherwise, also create a “BOOT Server”.
STEP 1: Create ‘INSTALL SERVER’ directory for solaris 10.
Location: ‘/export/home/splaris10′
Procedure: By executing script from the Solaris 10 DVD.
STEP 2: Execute in /cdrom/sol_10_106_x86/Solaris_10/Tools:
./setup_install_server /export/home/solaris10
STEP 3: Setup Client for installation.
Execute in /cdrom/sol_10_106_x86/Solaris_10/Tools:
./add_insatll_client -d -e “00:11:22:33:44:55″ -s 192.168.1.50:/export/home/solaris10 i86pc
STEP 4: Share ‘/export/home/solaris10′ using NFS. Note: Share will update /etc/dfs/sharetab.
Command: ‘share -F nfs -o ro -d “INSTALL SERVER” /export/home/solaris10′
STEP 5: Configure DHCP for PXE support. (CREATE HOST RESERVATIONS) Note: You must know the client’s MAC address for a specific Install.
Sample: Note: Get Client’s MAC address for a specific install.
host solserv2 {
hardware ethernet 00:11:22:33:44:55;
fixed-address 192.168.1.100;
option host-name “solserv2″;
filename 001122334455;
next-server 192.168.1.50; #SOLARIS INSTALL SERVER
}
STEP 6 : Power on the client server and proceed with installation.
Procedure:
Client Machine(Power On) –> DHCP (192.168.1.15) –> Boot file/ Next-server –> INSTALL server –> GRUB.

SOLARIS PXE INSTALLATION


1. IF CLIENT to be installed and INSTALL server are on the same subnet, you simply create an ‘INSTALL server’. Otherwise, also create a “BOOT Server”.

STEP 1:

Create ‘INSTALL SERVER’ directory for solaris 10.

Location: ‘/export/home/splaris10′

Procedure: By executing script from the Solaris 10 DVD.

STEP 2:

Execute in /cdrom/sol_10_106_x86/Solaris_10/Tools:

./setup_install_server /export/home/solaris10

STEP 3:

Setup Client for installation.

Execute in /cdrom/sol_10_106_x86/Solaris_10/Tools:

./add_insatll_client -d -e “00:11:22:33:44:55″ -s 192.168.1.50:/export/home/solaris10 i86pc

STEP 4:

Share ‘/export/home/solaris10′ using NFS. Note: Share will update /etc/dfs/sharetab.

Command: ‘share -F nfs -o ro -d “INSTALL SERVER” /export/home/solaris10′

STEP 5:

Configure DHCP for PXE support. (CREATE HOST RESERVATIONS) Note: You must know the client’s MAC address for a specific Install.

Sample: Note: Get Client’s MAC address for a specific install.

host solserv2 {

hardware ethernet 00:11:22:33:44:55;

fixed-address 192.168.1.100;

option host-name “solserv2″;

filename 001122334455;

next-server 192.168.1.50; #SOLARIS INSTALL SERVER

}

STEP 6 :

Power on the client server and proceed with installation.

Procedure:

Client Machine(Power On) –> DHCP (192.168.1.15) –> Boot file/ Next-server –> INSTALL server –> GRUB.
