We just got some sun v440's yesterday, and I was a little surprised to find them pre-loaded.
If you don't get a reply, try installing on x86...that's what I did last night.

Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a SPARC box sitting around...

we also got a new box(v440)...It also arrived pre-installed.

Since the box isn't ready for production, I initiated a new install of solaris 10.

I wanted to change the layout and found that my biggest problem w/the terminal.
I initially used an HPconsole, and after trying several different terminal settings (wyse,hpterm,vt100) I gave up and found an old vt100 term sitting around (old sequent system).

I'll get back to the install on Monday, but I have a few questions:

I was only able to make 7 (i think) filesystems, I guess they have a maximum number during the install?

I initiated the install from the {go} prompt, "boot cdrom"...but to be honest, I'm not sure how I got the prompt to begin with?

Since I am planning on doing a few more of these, what is the preferred way to initiate an install from a cd/dvd?


maybe sun stock will go up, with all these sunbox purchases Smilie
