Issue with ./add_install_client

Hi Gurus,

I am strugling to add the client on my system for booting from server and installation.

1. For jumpstart its not getting automated, what i mean is that i have to enter the language option and other.

2 In case of bootserver i am getting
cannot opne kernal/sparcv9/unix 
  enter filename kernal/sparcv9/unix

Please help!

to setup jumpstart i always recommend "JET" from sun. it's much easier to setup and well documented!

Thanks Duke!

bootserver is working fine excluding that on the # prompt the cursor keep rotating as in its trying to install some thing

for jumpstart server it seems its unable to read the configuration detail in term of time zone and all, which means it require me to input the detail beore it go to next screen, after i give the time zone and all it working okay.

What am i missing?

the clinet is build with below

./add_install_clinet -e 8:0:20:c0:c1:93 -c sun2:/export/config -s sun2:/export/install/sparc_10 sun1 sun4u
