This document provides the steps and explanations necessary to set up a Jump Start server for the Solaris 10 OS on a Sun x86/x64 machine, along with configuring Jump Start for two or more clients.
As a general reference, refer to the Sun online document Using Custom Jump Start.
Posted 2 days ago Also, worth signing up to the JETJump [email protected]/forum, JET module authors external to Sun can supply help.
The JET templates make switching between x86/sparc installs very simple.

Save yourself hours of time of trying to figure out pntadm, dhtadm, and just use ISC DHCP on Solaris.
The lease file holds all of the dhcp leases it gives out and by default is at /var/db/dhcpd.leases.

Nobody wants to install more than a couple of machines using CDs and a generic configuration, so most administrators use Sun's Solaris Jump Start software if they want to customize their builds.
Jump Start is a powerful tool that makes unattended Solaris installs possible with fine-grained control over machine configurations, but it has a few shortcomings.
Jump Start is fairly limited in booting flexibility, but is still very capable when it comes to machine profiles.
