 Original question:

>  I'm trying to set up an install server directly from the .iso images
>  without burning them to cd first. After mounting the images through
>  lofiadm and starting the install server setup script, I get a message
>  like
>  /mnt/Solaris/Tools/Boot does not existst
>  which is true, as Boot is a link to ../../../s1, which indeed doesn't
>  exist.
>  Does anyone know how to get around this? I thought this had been discussed
>  previously on comp.unix.solaris, but I couldn't find it there.

 Thanks to Rich Teer, ghenry, Matthew Stier, Ole Morten Xian, Scott Mickey.

 Instructions how to achieve the above are located at


 The description at docbert seems to be based on the sunsolve docs.

 The docbert/sunsolve isntructions worked for me, but not the ones from
 bolthole (mount complaining that the s1 image is not a ufs filesystem;
 and indeed, the offsets are different). That said, I didn't attempt to
 use the scanufs method.
