Operating Systems Solaris Jumpstart from DVD Post 303000386 by jnojr on Tuesday 11th of July 2017 11:10:30 AM
Old 07-11-2017
Between Building A Solaris 10 Recovery DVD - Phoronix and placing the sysidcfg file in /etc of the miniroot (as opposed to following the default symlink to /tmp/root/etc/sysidcfg), it's reading that config. It looks like I had an issue with the profile. I changed my rules file to 'any - begin profile finish' and fleshed out the network config in sysidcfg.

Now, after booting, I get "An error has occurred in configuring the system. Please go back and check your settings." /var/sadm/system/logs/sysidtool.log is the only log file I can find that seems relevant. It has a line "get_net_ipaddr: returend FAILURE: e1000g0 is probably already" 'ifconfig -a' agrees... e1000g0 became unnumbered. If I use ifconfig to bring it up, that doesn't get me anywhere. Earlier in sysidtool.log, there are multiple references to e1000g0 having the correct IP address. It appears that something is making it unconfigure or renumber the interface and give up.

sysidtool, sysidnet, sysidns, sysidsys, sysidroot, sysidpm, sysidnfs4 - system configuration SYNOPSIS
/usr/sbin/sysidnet /usr/sbin/sysidns /usr/sbin/sysidsys /usr/sbin/sysidroot /usr/sbin/sysidpm /usr/sbin/sysidnfs4 DESCRIPTION
sysidtool is a suite of programs that configure a new system, or one that has been unconfigured with sys-unconfig(1M). The sysidtool pro- grams run automatically at system installation, or during the first boot after a machine has been successfully unconfigured. These programs have no effect except at such times, and should never be run manually. The sysidtool programs set up the appropriate information in the machine's configuration files, in the kernel, and on the machine's network interface. The following list shows the available commands and the information for which each of the commands lists. sysidnet: network configuration Machine's default locale. Machine's console type. Machine's host name. Machine's IP address. sysidns: name service configuration Name service choice: NIS, NIS+, DNS, LDAP, or none. Machine's IP subnet mask (if no NIS/NIS+ server can automatically be located on the machine's sub-network. Domain name for chosen name service. Hostname and IP address of name server(s). DNS search list (DNS name ser- vice only) sysidsys: miscellaneous system configuration Machine's IP subnet mask (if an NIS/NIS+ server was automatically located on the machine's sub-network). Machine's time zone. Date and time. sysidroot: control superuser information Machine's root password. sysidpm: power management configuration Auto-shutdown confirmation if the system is Energystar-V2 compliant, that is, a new system model shipped after October 1, 1995. sysidnfs4: NFSv4 domain configuration Domain name to be used by NFSv4 client(s) and server(s) to transmit user and group id's as strings of the general form "[user|group]@domain". sysidconfig: host- or platform-specific configuration This command controls specification and execution of custom configuration applications that can be specified for a particular host or a particular platform. See sysidconfig(1M). The sysidtool programs attempt to obtain system configuration information from various name service databases, for example, NIS, or from the sysidcfg(4) file, and you are prompted to provide the information if it cannot be found. However, you can avoid one or more of the prompts by preconfiguring the appropriate configuration information in the name service databases or in the sysidcfg(4) file. To preconfigure the information in the name service databases, you must use the name service commands or the Solstice AdminSuite tools. See Solaris 10 Installation Guide: Basic Installations for more details about how to preconfigure the system configuration information. The machine's configuration information is set up in its /etc and /var files. If a system has more than one network interface, you can use sysidtool to configure all interfaces on the system. You cannot use the name service databases or the sysidcfg(4) file to suppress the Power Management configuration prompt. However, you can suppress it by creating either the /autoshutdown or /noautoshutdown file before installation reboot. Accordingly, the auto-shutdown feature is silently configured. The /autoshutdown or /noautoshutdown files are removed by sysidpm before it exits. sysidnfs4 installs /etc/.NFS4inst_state.domain upon successful configuration of the NFSv4 domain name. Existence of this file suppresses any further prompting. FILES
/etc/.UNCONFIGURED /etc/nodename /etc/hostname.??[0-9] /etc/default/init /etc/defaultdomain /etc/passwd password file. See passwd(4). /etc/shadow shadow password file. See shadow(4). /etc/inet/hosts /etc/inet/netmasks /var/nis/NIS_COLD_START /var/yp/aliases /var/yp/binding/*/ypservers /etc/.sysIDtool.state /etc/power.conf Power Management configuration file. See power.conf(4). /etc/.PM_RECONFIGURE If this file is present during system reboot, the sysidpm program is run. This file is removed by sysidpm. /etc/.NFS4inst_state.domain This file is created upon successful configuration of the NFSv4 domain. If this file is present during system reboot, the sysidnfs4 program is run but no prompts are displayed. The suppression of prompts is intended for system upgrades, in which a system configura- tion typically stays unchanged. Stability level of this interface: Obsolete ATTRIBUTES
