PXE Jumpstart for Solaris 10/x86

>>http://solaris.reys.net/english/2005/05/installing_solaris_with_pxe_dhcp

Problem:

>>Sun Bug 6332044: x86: Invalid /sbin/dhcpinfo Error During Installation (6332044)

If you install the Solaris 10 1/06 release on an x86 based system, the following error message is displayed.

/sbin/dhcpinfo: primary interface requested but no primary interface is set
The error does not affect the installation, and the installation succeeds.

Workaround: Ignore the error message.

Commentary: only manual installations succeed; Jumpstart installations bail out and start the manual installation.

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.
