Solaris 10 Diskless Clients
By John Clingan on Feb 11, 2005
A non-blogging heathen and I spent a few hours yesterday setting up a Solaris 10 diskless client. The client was a Dell Optiplex box with 256MB RAM. Everything worked fine until we realized we forgot to plug in the mouse and the X server complained.
Note to self: 256MB RAM running Gnome with a swap drive over a network is like banging your head against the corner of your desk: painful. :)
Two notes to remember: "svcadm enable bootparams" and "svcadm enable rarp". Otherwise your diskless client will also be OS-less.
One cool thing: snoop shows NFSv4. Yyyyeeeaaaahhhh, baby.
