  • 1. Saving Solaris (8) bootblock?
    Is it possible to do this? For instance, back it up from one machine and then restore onto another directly? (use dd or something?) Where can I find info about the solaris bootblock? I'm assuming it normally resides in the root partition?
  • 2. Locatrion in File structure of new scsi disk
    Hey all, Q) With system powered off, you physically connect a new SCSI disk intro the existing SCSI chain.You boot the system using the boot -r comman. In which four locations can you find the new device names for the new SCSI disk??? A. /devices B. /dev/dsk C./dev/rdsk D./kernal/drv E./etc/path_to_inst F./etc/name_to_major G./platform/sun5u/kernal/drv I thought answer would be ABC and E but book I have says its ABC and F Please advise Giovanni

Netra X1 hangs when net booting Solaris 10 1/06

Postby Greg Mortensen » Wed, 24 May 2006 23:34:41 GMT

  I have a boot server and a Netra X1 on the same subnet.  While I can 
net boot the X1 into single-user Solaris 9 ("boot net -s"), it won't boot 
Solaris 10 1/06:  it hangs shortly after loading the kernel and  
requesting it's address for the third(?) time (the full transcript is 
below).  

  Ideas?  Other posts have indicated that not having "anon=0" in the 
dfstab will lead to problems like this, but it's already set.

  Regards,
    Greg

Mmmnnn.  Well your jumpstart config files are correct.  What interface
do you define in sysidcfg?  Try explicitly defiining dmfe0 as the
primary interface.

See anything on the network when this happens?  Valid response?
Anything from the client after that?

1.Netra X1 hangs at boot time

Hello,

I'm trying to reinstall a Netra X1. I try to boot directly form a other
used netra Hard disk with Solaris8 inside, and hangs at boot. We try to
do an "boot -s" and still hangs.

We try to put a CDROM on second IDE as a master, and doing "boot" and
"boot -s" with Solaris 8 and 9 hangs. This is a screen of the hang:


ok boot cdrom

Maybe is a OBP variable problem? Maybe a hardware pb? Any ideas?

2.Solaris 10 1/06 installation hangs after booting from CD

I downloaded 4 ISO images (x86) from Sun and burnt them to CDs, and
after I try to boot installation from CD 1, and select either item
from GRUB menu (e.g. "Solaris"), I start getting standard messages on
the screen: "SunOS Release 5.10 Version GENERIC-118844-26 32-bit,
Copyright [...] Use is subject to license terms", that remains the
last message on the screen. I was waiting and waiting and installation
doesn't go any further.
Although I had tried installing Solaris 10 from DVD few months ago on
the same machine (laptop) and everything went fine; i downloaded
"Solaris Installation Check Tool" and burnt ISO and after booting from
it, the same thing happens: it hangs after the initial "Copyright
message"... What to do? Why is this?? I haven't got DVD burner and
Solaris DVD at this moment, so I need your help as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance.

Hello,
I intend to try to connect an iSCSI target to my Netra x1 (using

have to install Solaris 10 on the Netra, in order to have an

Anybody ever happened to d-i-y that kind of stuff before, any

it work (I intend to do that by myself at home, for sheer
experimentation purposes).

In advance, thanks.
