Small issue with Sun Sparc Enterprise T5120

Good Day,
We have bought Sun Sparc Enterprise T5120 with pre-installed Solaris 10 Sparc

But i need on this server Solaris 9. I have inserted in to DVD-rom (USB DVD-rom) with Solaris 9 for Sparc.

Then log into shell and type: reboot -- cdrom.
System rebooted and i have this message:

Boot device: /pci@0/pci@0/pci@1/pci@0/pci@1/pci@0/usb@0,2/hub@4/device@4/storage@0/disk@0:f File and args:
boot: cannot open kernel/sparcv9/unix
Enter filename [kernel/sparcv9/unix]:


Is it possible to install Solaris 9 Sparc on T5120 ?

Thank you

T5120 is a solaris 10 only hardware.

but I think you can do a solaris 9 branded zone.

a good introduction is in this link.

Ok,, Thx and I have another question. I have CD with Solaris 9. How can i install Solaris 9 in container (zone) from CD ?

Better to use:
zoneadm -z s9-zone install -x nodataset -d /cdrom/sol_9_905_sparc/s1/ -u
or
zoneadm -z s9-zone install -x nodataset -d /cdrom/sol_9_905_sparc/s1/ -p ?
