two situations i can think of...
depending on how you resolve names to ips, you may need to add it to your controller or add it to say /etc/hosts on your js server.


you may need to add the servers mac address to /etc/ethers on the js server.

i remember this issue but can't think of the solution at the moment.

The E3000 is supported by Solaris 10.

Try "boot net -avs" and see where it hangs.
"whoami: No domain name" is both unrelated and harmless.

well then i'd say its on your js. i would run throught the js config again. maybe you missed something like adding the client mac address.

here is a very simple procedure: Installing Jumpstart server and client
