AFAIR there are two package formats, one is a one-file, and the other is a directory (one can convert to each other with the pkgtrans command).

Your decision.
Usually I removed them, in order to occupy less space on the file system (and on the backup medium).
Also saved me from "what's this?" questions :D

The restoresymtable is a temporary file for ufsrestore, and can be safely removed.
(Actually ufsrestore only needs it if the dump file is on tape and spans over more than one tape.)

I am surprised that reset is an unknown command. Try reset-all. Or power-cycle the box.
I think "Enter filename" means it has run a boot block okay, but it does not find the "platform" (e.g. for...

My commands are for the ok> prompt, after an "init 0" from the Solaris OS.
Maybe your prompt is slightly different: {1} ok .
Another useful command is:
ok> printenv

The command is correct for Solaris Sparc, and a CD with a Solaris boot block should work.
Is the CD okay? Cloned ones can miss the boot block.
Can also be a defective cdrom drive (does it work...

As noted in the message marked in red above... maybe the boot command is expecting you to provide the pathname of a file on the CD-ROM and not just the -s argument to be passed to it???

While {} \; runs a chmod for each file, the {} + collects the filenames and, when long enough, runs a chmod with the collected argument list.
Fewer invocations of chmod => greater speed.

My understanding is that the two Solaris boxes NFS-mount the same file system from another box, a NAS (Network Attached Storage) box.
Perfectly normal.
