    Provisioning Solaris Servers with BladeLogic

    John Van Ommen

      According to Sun's documentation, "To perform a JumpStart installation successfully, the JumpStart server must know the ethernet address (MAC) and IP addresses of the JumpStart client(s). This information is provided to the JumpStart server through a name service such as NIS+ or NIS—or through the use of the /etc/hosts and /etc/ethers files."


      How does BladeLogic fit in to this picture?


      I've scoured the documentation and I don't see any mention of the /etc/ethers file.


      Does BladeLogic add the necessary entries to the hosts file and the ethers file during the provisioning process?


      I've reviewed the install docs and the user's guide, and don't see any mention of this.
