Use the following procedure for Solaris clients.

To restore a Solaris client with media boot

  2. Insert the bootable CD or bootable DVD into the CD-ROM drive.

  3. Turn off the client, then turn on.

  4. Terminate the boot process using the Stop+A key combination.

    boot cdrom

    The Solaris OS Installation prompts you for network identification.

  7. Enter the network identification.

  8. Enter the required information at the following BMR process prompts:

    After you enter the required information, the restore begins.
