Jumpstart configuration

For SPARC systems

Put in the Airlock Sparc CD in the CD drive of your jumpstart server. Then do the following steps:
Remark: the example is based on Airlock Version 4.1-10.28% ssh root@jumpstartserver
jumpstartserver# cd /files/install/airlock
jumpstartserver# mkdir -p 4.1-10.28/s10-u3-sparc
jumpstartserver# chmod 755 4.1-10.28/s10-u3-sparc
jumpstartserver# cd /cdrom/cdrom0/s0/Solaris_10/Tools
jumpstartserver# ./setup_install_server /files/install/airlock/4.1-10.28/s10-u3-sparc
jumpstartserver# cd /files/install/airlock/4.1-10.28/s10-u3-sparc/Solaris_10/Tools
jumpstartserver# ./add_install_client <airlock hostname> sun4u
...
jumpstartserver# cd /
jumpstartserver# eject
jumpstartserver# exit
Make sure that the new Airlock host is specified in the files /etc/hosts and /etc/ethers on the jumpstart server:

In /etc/hosts:
<airlock host IP address> <airlock hostname>
In /etc/ethers:
<airlock host MAC address> <airlock hostname>

After all, on the Airlock host start the installation with the console command boot net - install.

For x86 systems

Put the Airlock i386 CD in the CD drive of an x86 system in your network. Make sure the jumpserver has network access to this x86 machine. Then do the following commands:

% ssh root@x86system
x86system# shareall
x86system# exit

Then setup the jumpstart server as follows:
Remark: the example is based on Airlock Version 4.1-10.28% ssh root@jumpstartserver
jumpstartserver# cd /files/install/airlock
jumpstartserver# mkdir -p 4.1-10.28/s10-u3-i386
jumpstartserver# chmod 755 4.1-10.28/s10-u3-i386
jumpstartserver# mount <IP x86system>:/cdrom/cdrom0 /mnt
jumpstartserver# cd /mnt/Solaris_10/Tools
jumpstartserver# ./setup_install_server /files/install/airlock/4.1-10.28/s10-u3-i386
(add_install_client
: see links below)
...
jumpstartserver# cd /
jumpstartserver# umount /mnt
jumpstartserver# exit

For the x86 client configurations, please consult the SUN Solaris 10 Installation Guide: Custom JumpStart and Advanced Installation (in special: add_install_client).

Ergon support for x86 jumpstart installations is limited.

At the end unshare the x86 system and take off the Airlock CD.
% ssh root@x86system
x86system# unshareall
x86system# eject
x86system# exit
