Symptoms

During a jumpstart or a flash install, there is an "NFS server not responding still trying" error.

This error happens just after the line :

Using sysid configuration file :/jumpstart/config//sysidcfg

Here is the example :
# more sysidcfg
network_interface=ce2 {hostname=
ip_address=1.1.1.1
netmask=255.255.255.0
default_route=2.2.2.2
protocol_ipv6=no}
name_service=DNS {domain_name=domain.com
name_server=3.3.3.3,4.4.4.4}
system_locale=fr
timezone=MET
timeserver=localhost
terminal=vt100
security_policy=none
root_password="cmcS.kGTssaZ."
When the client launches the jumpstart/flash install :
ok boot jump:dhcp - install
We then receive :
Jun 8 11:29:46 2004 {40} ok boot jump:dhcp - install
Jun 8 11:29:46 2004 Boot device: /pci@1d,700000/network@1:dhcp File and
