On SunFire V210 and V240, Solaris 9 04/03 is requested.
Solaris 8 12/02 will also work.
More information in :

Thanks to folks who answered my question very quickly.


The question :

I have a new SunFire V210, with an internal DVDrom reader.
I Can't install Solaris 9 (12/02) version from the DVD distribution.
Under the Ok> prompt, I type boot cdrom
The boot process starts normally, finding the boot device
Then I receie the following messages :
boot: cannot open kernel/sparcv9/unix
Enter filename [kernel/sparcv9/unix]:

Does it mean that SunFire V210 is not supported by this Solaris9 version
(12/02) ?

I have the same problem if I replace the Solaris9 DVDrom by a Solaris9
I am connected to the V210 from another Sun server cia a serial link and
the tip command.

Thanks for any help
