Post date: April 13, 2005, 05:04 Category: Installing Views: 3735 Comments
Tutorial quote: An interesting use of Solaris 8 on a PC laptop is for use with the JumpStart technology. It has never been so easy to install, re-install, or restore a server before.

As I am as a contractor, I am more on the road than in my own office, so I need a laptop, and preferably with Solaris installed, as I am focusing on Sun's products and applications.

Through the years, I have discovered that one of the most common scenarios is that a client needs a server installed, either because they just bought it, or need it re-installed, or recovered.

This article covers how to save time when installing servers, using the JumpStart technology on a laptop with Solaris for Intel.

Tutorial quote: Solaris will exercise everything on a PC. I have seen machines run just fine with Windows for months and crash during a Solaris x86 install. The reason was always marginal parts/specs/timings/temperatures that were never pushed to the failure limits until Solaris x86 was installed.
