I am attempting to install a Netra 200 with Solaris 8 (10/00). The
installation technique is a completely automated network jumpstart install.
This is not the first time I have installed this client, and it has always
worked in the past. I have confirmed that the /jumpstart share is shared,

I am using the "Building a Jumpstart Infrastructure" guide
( as an outline.

Here is the error message:
Searching for JumpStart directory...
not found
Warning: Could not find matching rule in rules.ok
Press the return key for an interactive Solaris install program...


I got some responses, which advised me to verify that the /jumpstart
directory was shared, that the rules.ok was properly generated by check,

The actual cause of the problem was a mismatch between the two machines

The jumpstart server was at ip netmask ff000000
The client was at ip netmask ffffff00

The only thing I don't understand is how the nfs traffic did not make it
through, and the tftp, RARP did.
