I had problems trying to boot net a new 500MHz version
of Netra X1 with 01/01 Solaris 8 install image with
Netra mis patches.
"You need Solaris 8 4/01 or higher..."
"go for 07/01 version which works fine with the Blade."
"download latest Netra X1 drivers."
I ended up downloading the latest Netra mis patches / drivers from
Even though I had these previously patched to the install Image,
the fresh driver package had some new updated patches. After
patching these to the install Image the X1 boot netted fine.
I have a network install server from which I can successfully
net boot / install older 400MHz Netra X1's. However when trying
to net boot a newer 500MHz model it allways dies with:
"(Can't load tod module) Program terminated."
The install image was made from 01/01 Solaris 8 and has the
needed mis1.netra-x1 patches installed.
So obviously something has changed with the new 500MHz models.
How can I make my network install work with the new models?
