Building a Solaris 10 Jumpstart in just minutes

In case you are looking for a fast way to to move or transfer an existing JumpStart tree to another Solaris 10 server and be able to use the JumpStart functionality just follow this steps:

Check and be sure that the following packages are installed on the new JumpStart server you are making:

SUNWnfssu Network File System (NFS) server support (Usr)
SUNWnfssr Network File System (NFS) server support (Root)
SUNWnfsskr Network File System (NFS) server kernel support (Root)
SUNWtftp Trivial File Transfer Server

On the new Solaris 10 JumpStart server do this:

# mkdir /export/install

# cd /export/install

# ssh old_JumpStart_server "cd /export/install; tar cf - ." tar xpf -

# echo 'share -F nfs -o ro,anon=0 -d "Jumpstart Directory" /export/install' >> /etc/dfs/dfstab

# shareall

# /usr/bin/echo "# TFTPD - tftp server (primarily used for booting)" >> /etc/inetd.conf

# /usr/bin/echo "tftp\tdgram\tudp6\twait\troot\t/usr/sbin/in.tftpd\tin.tftpd -s /tftpboot" >> /etc/inetd.conf

# inetconv
