The following is a quick procedure to move an existing JumpStart tree to another Solaris 10 server and enable JumpStart functionality.

Make sure the following packages are installed on the new JumpStart server:

* SUNWnfssu     Network File System (NFS) server support (Usr)
* SUNWnfssr     Network File System (NFS) server support (Root)
* SUNWnfsskr    Network File System (NFS) server kernel support (Root)
* SUNWtftp      Trivial File Transfer Server

Steps on the new JumpStart server (assuming Solaris 10):

# mkdir /export/install
# cd /export/install
# ssh old_JumpStart_server "cd /export/install; tar cf - ." | tar xpf -
# echo 'share -F nfs -o ro,anon=0 -d "Jumpstart Directory" /export/install' >> /etc/dfs/dfstab
# shareall
# /usr/bin/echo "# TFTPD - tftp server (primarily used for booting)" >> /etc/inetd.conf
# /usr/bin/echo "tftp\tdgram\tudp6\twait\troot\t/usr/sbin/in.tftpd\tin.tftpd -s /tftpboot" >> /etc/inetd.conf
# inetconv
