M4000 SPARC Enterprise Server was used to install Solaris 10 OS. The Solaris 10 version that was included with the server is 1/06. When we tried to install the server, after the boot cdrom command, it gives an error message “cannot open kernel/sparcv9/unix”, and prompts us “enter filename:kernel/sparcv9/unix:”. We tried to enter various options, and each time comes up an error message “could not open file”.
# cannot open kernel/sparcv9/unix
# enter filename:kernel/sparcv9/unix
1) Boot the OS from CD Rom but failed.
2) Tried to find out the Kernel files but failed.
3) Tried with Solaris 10 08/07 and it works well.
The M4000 SPARC Enterprise Server only supports Solaris 10 version higher than 11/06. Thus, the using version 1/06 was not compatible with the M4000 SPARC Enterprise Server.
Check the supporting version before installing the devices/software.
