Original question was regarding automating Jumpstart.
With 2.6 we got another variable to pass to client - locale.

in the profile along with your clusters and packages...
I did not check this.

The one that worked for me was the pointer to man page for sysidcfg(4) from
Jim Harmon

I eneded up creating common sysidcfg file in the jumpstart configuration directory
and pointing to that file from the following bootparam entry:

jumpsrv# cat /export/install/jumpstart/sysidcfg

Thnx guys.
