boot Error for jumpstart

Hi community,

I am installing Solaris 10 using a jumpstart installation. Both Server and Client are in the same netmask. When I perform the "boot net - install" command, I receive the following error:

Timeout waiting for ARP/RARP packets
Timeout waiting for ARP/RARP packets
Timeout waiting for ARP/RARP packets

and so on



Does anyone know the solution? Please it is very urgent.Smilie

Thank you very much!!

That means the client can't see the jumpstart server. Why? It could be physical (NIC, cables, patch panel) or it could be the jumpstart configuration,usually a discrepancy in the netmasks between the jumpstart and the subnet netmask.
