Jumpstart: ERROR: could not load the media (/cdrom)

During a "Solaris 10 8/07 s10s_u4wos_12b SPARC" jumpstart install, the jumpstart client complained:

cat: cannot open /cdrom/.cdtoc
cat: cannot open /cdrom/.cdtoc
expr: syntax error
expr: syntax error
cat: cannot open /cdrom/.cdtoc
expr: syntax error
ERROR: could not load the media (/cdrom)

It turned out that my /etc/dfs/dfstab entry was not pointing the the correct level of the hierarcy.

The correct entry is:

share -F nfs -o ro,anon=0 /export/home/sol_10_807_sparc

The incorrect entry is:

share -F nfs -o ro,anon=0 /export/home/sol_10_807_sparc/Solaris_10

Root of the problem was that "/export/home/sol_10_807_sparc/.cdtoc" was not visible via NFS.

# cat /etc/bootparams
scnode2.mydomain.com  root=scnode1:/export/home/sol_10_807_sparc/Solaris_10/Tools/Boot install=192.168.87.53:/export/home/sol_10_807_sparc boottype=:in sysid_config=192.168.87.53:/export/home/jumpstart install_config=192.168.87.53:/export/home/jumpstart rootopts=:rsize=8192 ns=[192.168.201.25]:dns[255.255.252.0]

Hey!

Just ran into a similiar problem today when trying to jumpstart Solaris 10 u8(1009).
My dfstab had:

/jumpstart/install_server/solaris10_0509_x86/boot

When it should have been:

/jumpstart/install_server/solaris10_0509_x86/boot

Many Thank,
-swinful
