server will not boot

Just got a new sun fire v440 server, try to boot server but server will not boot, got the following error message.
"the file just loaded does not appear to be excutedable"
boot: cannot open /kernel/sparcv9/unix
Enter filename /kernel/sparcv9/unix

I thought maybe server is not pre install with OS, so I try to jumpstart server but I kept getting this error messages:
"timeout waiting for ARP/RARP packet requesting ip for 0:4:cc:55:b2:a1"

the mac address is in my jumpstart /etc/ethers.

I also try boot from cd-rom
ok: boot cdrom -s

but received the error message
boot: cannot open /kernel/sparcv9/unix
Enter filename /kernel/sparcv9/unix

Can you help, please.

If this is a new server, I take it you have taken out support, with SUN, when you bought it. Get in touch with them. they should be able to sort the problem out quickly.

I download the latest version of solaris 9 and I was able to jumpstart my v440 with the latest version of solaris 9.
