Hi all,

As soon as the network issues were resolved, the installation continued

Thanks to all who responded.

Subject: UPDATE: Disk replacement on Ultra-10 (Solaris 2.7)

I would like to add a couple of things.

- I waited for about 12 hours (I left it overnight)!

- We are using NIS, and there was a network issue, but I know this can be
fixed by running ypinit -c, after installation is complete.  Should I just
disable NIS, and see if it proceeds?

Subject: Disk replacement on Ultra-10 (Solaris 2.7)

Hi all,

I replaced a defective hard drive on an Ultra-10, and booted using a
Solaris 2.7 CD-ROM.  I can see the disk ok, and then proceeded with
partitioning (format), and filesystem creation (newfs).  I did not run
into any problems.

The issue is that I am unable to complete the Solaris installation on the
new disk.  After filling out the network and timezone info, the console
reports that the system identification is complete, but it does not
proceed with installation.  If I try to restart the installation, it
reports that the instalation program is already running.  I have done this
several times before, and I don't recall running into this.  Is there a
way that I can manually force it to proceed after the system
identification is done?

Thank you in advance for your input.  Please, let me know if you need me
to provide additional info.
