Problem

Executing last command: boot net - install
Boot device: /pci@1f,0/ethernet@c File and args: -v install
3a000 panic - boot: Could not mount filesystem.
Program terminated
ok

Diagnostic

Add the -v switch to your boot command:

ok boot -v - install

Executing last command: boot net -v install Boot device: /pci@1f,0/ethernet@c File and args: -v install 3a000 Using RARP/BOOTPARAMS… Internet address is: x.x.252.179 hostname: foo28 domainname: nis.dev.foo.com Found x.x.252.201 @ 0:3:ba:5:5b:91 root server: foo43 (x.x.252.201) root directory: /cdrom/Solaris_10/Tools/Boot panic - boot: Could not mount filesystem. Program terminated ok

In my case, the key was the system foo43 which was running a rpc.bootparamd with stock values, rather than the customized values required to actually boot. Killing the offinding rpc.bootparamd left the one on the central bootserver running, and the jumpstart proceeded normally from there.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
