Please use [CODE] tags when posting console output, ...


Thanks for the assistance ( Kinda new to forums) ...

I was thinking that the error might be referencing the version of JET installed on the Server..


Code:
 
The following package is currently installed:
   SUNWjet  Sun JumpStart Enterprise Toolkit
            (sparc,i386) 4.7

With is error:


Code:
Processing profile
        - Opening Flash archive

ERROR: Unsupported version (3.0).

ERROR: Flash installation failed
Solaris installation program exited.

I needed to update the miniroot with patch 124630-58 (or greater).

Code:
This is from the README of patch 119534-27 which I had installed.

Note 11: Flash archives created after applying this patch will have a new
         version number: 3.0.  The following patch must be applied to the
         miniroot of install images used for installing this new version
         of flash archives:
 
         124630-51 (or greater)  System Administration Applications, Network,
                                 and Core Libraries Patch

Here is a good article on how to patch miniroot,

Can't post urls yet....

I can run # patchadd -p <boot-image> to verify what version of this patch 124630-51 or not.

---------- Post updated at 01:11 PM ---------- Previous update was at 01:08 PM ----------

Hope this helps someone else out in the future

Did you updated your boot server to inform that new flash archive is present ?

Not sure if I completely understand your question but no.
I did not modify the flash archive but i did update the Jet template ("base_config_ClientOS=") to point to the updated miniroot.

Same issue for me with flash archive installs on Solaris 10_u9 (10_9/10) yet only after patching up to kernel rev 147440-10 then adding one-off patch 119534-29 (for SUNWinst). Seems the dead ringer for this issue indeed is:

ERROR: Unsupported version (3.0).
ERROR: Flash installation failed
Solaris installation program exited.

Finally figured this out... if you look at the header of the flash archive via:

> head -1 your-flar-file | strings

and you'll see this string:

FlAsH-aRcHiVe-3.0

Which means the flash archive is v3.0. And support for 3.0 in Solaris 10 is not yet complete. Patch 119534-29 is the problem, upgrades flarcreate to new version 3.0. Simply removed 119534-29, regressed back to 119534-19. Then flarcreate will only create version 2.0 flash archives:

> showrev -p | grep 119534
Patch: 119534-29 Obsoletes: Requires: ... ... Packages: SUNWinst
> patchrm 119534-29
> showrev -p | grep 119534
Patch: 119534-19 Obsoletes: Requires: ... ... Packages: SUNWinst

Then recreate your flar and check the version of the flar again:

> head -1 your-flar-file | strings

FlAsH-aRcHiVe-2.0

Above put me back in business... hope others find this useful.
