DESCRIPTION

These commands are located on slice 0 of the Solaris Software and Solaris Installer CDs. If the Solaris CD has been copied to a local disk, cdrom_mnt_pt is the path to the copied Solaris CD. They can be used for a variety of installation tasks. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 27 Sep 1999 1 Maintenance Commands install_scripts(1M) add_install_client There are three versions of this command. See SYNOPSIS. Use the following version of the add_install_client command to add clients for network installation (these commands update the bootparams(4) file). The add_install_client com- mand must be run from the install server's Solaris installa- tion image (a mounted Solaris CD or a Solaris CD copied to disk) or the boot server's boot directory (if a boot server is required). The Solaris installation image or the boot directory must be the same Solaris release that you want installed on the client. cdrom-mnt-pt /Solaris_8/Tools/add_install_client [ -i IP_address ] [ -e Ethernet_address ] [ -s server_name : path ] [ -c server_name : path ] [ -n [ server ] : name_service [ ( netmask ] ] [ -p server_name : path ] host_name platform_group Use the following version of the add_install_client command to add support for instances of a platform within a platform group to the install server. This group will be booted and configured using DHCP. The script will perform the neces- sary configuration steps on the server, and prints the data that the user needs to add to the DHCP server for the group. cdrom-mnt-pt /Solaris_8/Tools/add_install_client -d [ -s server:path ] [ -c server:path ] [ -p server:path ] [ -t install boot image path ] [ -f boot file name ] platform_name platform_group Use the following version of the add_install_client command to add a single client to the install server. This client will be booted and configured using DHCP. The script will perform the necessary configuration steps on the server, and will print the data that the user needs to add to the DHCP server for the client. The -f flag used above needs to be added to the existing usage as well. -f allows the user to specify a boot file name to be used for a given client. cdrom-mnt-pt /Solaris_8/Tools/add_install_client -d [ -s server_name:path ] [ -c server_name:path ] [ -p server_name:path ] [ -t install_boot_image_path ] [ -f boot_file_name ] -e Ethernet_address platform_group add_to_install_server Use add_to_install_server to merge other Solaris CDs with an existing image on a Net Install Server. Each CD that can be merged (currently OS CD 2, and the Language CD) has its own add_to_install_server script. Do not use add_to_install_server scripts with CDs other than the ones with which they were delivered. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 27 Sep 1999 2 Maintenance Commands install_scripts(1M) check Use check to validate the rules in a rules file (this is only necessary if a custom JumpStart installation is being set up). modify_install_server Use modify_install_server to replace an existing net install server's miniroot with a Solaris Installation CD's miniroot. This will change the net install server's install time user interface over to the Solaris Installation CD's Web Start user interface. An existing install image (created using setup_install_server) must exist prior to using the modify_install_server command. rm_install_client Use rm_install_client to remove clients for network instal- lation (these commands update the bootparams(4) file). setup_install_server Use setup_install_server to copy the Solaris CD to a disk (to set up an install server) or to copy just the boot software of the Solaris CD to a disk (to set up a boot server). An install server is required to install clients over the network. A boot server is also required for network installations if the install server and clients to be installed are on different subnets (the boot server must be located on the client's subnet).

OPTIONS

The following options are supported: add_install_client -c server_name:path This option is required only to specify a JumpStart directory for a custom JumpStart installation. server_name is the host name of the server with a JumpStart directory. path is the absolute path to the JumpStart directory. -d Specify as a DHCP client. -e Ethernet_address Specify the Ethernet address of the system to be installed. -f Specify the boot_file_name of the client to be installed. -i IP_address Specify the IP address of the client to be installed. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 27 Sep 1999 3 Maintenance Commands install_scripts(1M) -n [server]:name_service[(netmask)] This option specifies which name service should be used during system configuration. This sets the ns keyword in the bootparams(4) file. name_service Valid entries are nis, nisplus, and none. netmask A series of four numbers separated by periods, specifying which portion of an IP address is the network part, and which is the host part. server The name of the server or IP address of the specified name service. If the server specified is on a different subnet, then the netmask may be needed to enable the client to contact the server. -p server_name:path This option is the location of the user-defined sysidcfg file for pre-configuring system or network information. server_name is either a valid host name or IP address. path is the absolute path to the file. -s server_name:path This option is required only when using add_install_client from a boot server. Specify the name of the server and the absolute path of the Solaris installation image that will be used for this installation. path is either the path to a mounted Solaris CD or a path to a directory with a copy of the Solaris CD. add_to_install_server -p Specifies the location of the CD (containing the sup- plemental products) to be copied. -s Allows users to select from a list only the products needing installation. check -p install_dir_path Validates the rules file by using the check script from a specified Solaris installation image, instead of the check script from the system you are using. install_dir_path is the path to a Solaris installation image on a local disk or a mounted Solaris CD. Use this option to run the most recent version of SunOS 5.8 Last change: 27 Sep 1999 4 Maintenance Commands install_scripts(1M) check if your system is running a previous version of Solaris. -r rulesfile Specifies a rules file other than the one named rules. Using this option, the validity of a rule can be tested before integrating it into the rules file. check will report whether or not the rule is valid, but it will not create the rules.ok file necessary for a custom JumpStart installation. modify_install_server -p This option preserves the existing images miniroot in install_dir_path/Solaris_8/Tools/Boot.orig. setup_install_server -b This option sets up the server only as a boot server.

OPERANDS

The following operands are supported: add_install_client host_name This is the name of the client to be installed. platform_group Vendor-defined grouping of hardware platforms for the purpose of distributing specific software. Examples of valid platform groups are: ____________________________________________________________ | System | Platform Group | | IA | i86pc | | SPARCstation 1+ | sun4c | | SPARCstation 5 | sun4m | |_____________________________|_____________________________| Use the uname(1) command (with the -m option) to determine a system's platform group. platform_name Use the uname(1) command (with the -i option) to determine a system's platform name. The following example shows the use of the uname com- mand to determine the system platform name for an Ultra 1: uname -i SunOS 5.8 Last change: 27 Sep 1999 5 Maintenance Commands install_scripts(1M) The system responds with: SUNW,Ultra-1 Therefore, the system's platform name is SUNW,Ultra1. The following command calls add_install_client for Ultra 1s: add_install_client -d SUNW,Ultra-1 sun4u For IA32 platforms, the platform name is always SUNW.i86pc. The following command calls add_install_client for IA32 platforms: add_install_client -d SUNW.i86pc i86pc rm_install_client host_name This is the name of the client to be removed. setup_install_server install_dir_path The absolute path of the directory in which the Solaris software is to be copied. The directory must be empty.

EXAMPLES

add_install_client Example 1: Using add_install_client The following add_install_client commands add clients for network installation from a mounted Solaris CD on an install server: example# cd /cdrom/cdrom0/s0/Solaris_8/Tools example# ./add_install_client system_1 sun4c example# ./add_install_client system_2 sun4m Example 2: Using add_install_client The following add_install_client commands add clients for network installation from a mounted Solaris CD on an install server. The -c option specifies a server and path to a JumpStart directory that has a rules file and a profile file for performing a custom JumpStart installation. Also, the Solaris CD has been copied to the /export/install directory.
