boot helper problem

 

boot helper problem

Hello,
I like to make a boot helper system (to connect to a ignite server in an other subnet). The steps are:
Step 1: Install the Ignite-UX minimum core functionality onto the helper system
(I already installed ignite on my system)
Step 2: On the helper, run the following command to point the INSTALLFS at the correct Ignite-UX server:

# /opt/ignite/bin/instl_adm -t

Verify that INSTALLFS is referencing the correct Ignite-UX server, and gateway for your subnet:

# /opt/ignite/bin/instl_adm -d

Here is the problem:
# /opt/ignite/bin/instl_adm -t xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
instl_adm: Cannot open file: "": No such file or directory
(xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx = ip ignite server in other subnet)
does anybody knows why the instl_adm command doesn't work?
Thanks,
Robert Verhagen.

Re: boot helper problem

Hi Robert,

The documentation I have also says to install what you have stated. However, the instl_adm file belongs in the Ignite-UX.MGMT-TOOLS fileset on the later versions of Ignite-UX.

So I would include Ignite-UX.MGMT-TOOLS. In fact I typically install the full product.

I know the boot helper works because I use it too.


Cheers!!!

Re: boot helper problem

Hi Robert,

Was the following error message you wrote, an output from the instl_adm command ???

(xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx = ip ignite server in other subnet)

Otherwise,

Date: 5/24/00

Hope it helps,

Robert-Jan.

Re: boot helper problem

the message was from the instl_adm command.
I can't get it work so I put the client computer in the subnet of the ignite server (by vlan).
Everything works again.
Thanks for the help.
