Using LOM port to start boot solaris 10


Hopefully a question with a very short answer.

Previously I have been using a windows hyperterminal to boot solaris 10 systems (SunFire) over a serial lom cable.

I want to perform the same operation from a solaris 8 machine to boot solaris 10. Can anyone tell me what commands I should use to do this?

Using tip from Sun server to Sun server

You can use the tip command to connect from the serial port of a Sun machine to another Sun machine. You may have to edit the /etc/remote file.

%tip hardwire

There many be an entry called "hardwire" that works for you or can be used to create a new entry that does.

Here's an article in tip,
