It was indeed the default_route parameter.  However, some people suggested
that I use default_route=NONE, but it didn't like that.  It said it was a
syntax error.  I gave it a real IP address, and now it seems to be going
along its merry way.  Thanks to everyone who responded.


Original post:

Hi.  I'm trying to jumpstart some of my machines to Solaris 9 (that were
Solaris 8 before).  I used the Solaris 9 CD's to set up the install image
on my jumpstart server, and then set up the bootparams to point to the new
Solaris 9 files for one of my machines, but when it boots up, it won't
autoconfigure.  It stops on the install screens, and makes me go through
them manually.  Are there any extra values that are required in the
sysidcfg file for Solaris 9?  I couldn't find anything in the Installation
Guide or online.  Any other ideas what might be different to cause this?
btw, when I switch it back to Solaris 8, it works fine, so it definitely
seems to be something with the server-side configuration.
