Solaris 10 1/13 Install Fails on SPARC Systems with Virtual CD/DVD Devices (Doc ID 1529817.1)

Last updated on APRIL 15, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 10 1/13 U11 to 10 1/13 U11 [Release 10.0]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)

Symptoms

When SPARC systems are booted with the Solaris 10 1/13 ISO image using storage redirection or a virtual disk of OVM for SPARC (LDoms), the install media is not detected properly and install can fail.

Once NFS install fails, CD/DVD install no longer works too.
