NFS error on the sysidcfg file during a jumpstart or a flash install in DHCP client mode. (Doc ID 1001951.1)

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=<ip-add>
netmask=<netmask-add>
default_route=<ip-add>
protocol_ipv6=no}
name_service=DNS {domain_name=domain.com
name_server=<ip-add>,<ip-add>}
system_locale=fr
timezone=MET
timeserver=localhost
terminal=vt100
security_policy=none
root_password="<passwd>"
 
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
