use cpio arcivhe files as jumpstart image - Linux / Unix Administration

I built a system with Solaris 2.8, the hostname is jump1.xx.com then I use cpio archive the entire system from root, /var and /usr as root.cpio.gz, var.cpio.gz and usr.cpio.gz. I use the xx.cpio.gz files as my jumpstart image files for installing other system, such as jump2.xx.com. After I complete the jumpstart installation, the system jump2.xx.com keeps rebooting, never stop. If I do jumpstart to jump1.xx.com, which is the original build system hostname, it works just fine. I need to install many systems by using jumpstart. Right now, I do jumpstart to jump1.xx.com, then change the hostname after completing jumpstart installation. ...

    Default use cpio arcivhe files as jumpstart image

    I built a system with Solaris 2.8, the hostname is jump1.xx.com
    then I use cpio archive the entire system from root, /var
    and /usr as root.cpio.gz, var.cpio.gz and usr.cpio.gz.
    I use the xx.cpio.gz files as my
    jumpstart image files for installing other system, such as
    jump2.xx.com. After I complete the jumpstart installation, the system
    jump2.xx.com keeps rebooting, never stop.
    If I do jumpstart to jump1.xx.com, which is the original build system
    hostname, it works just fine.
    I need to install many systems by using jumpstart. Right now,
    I do jumpstart to jump1.xx.com, then change the hostname after
    completing jumpstart installation.
    Would any one please shed a light why I could not do jumpstart to
    different hostname

    The proper way to do this is to build a flash archive of jump1.xx.com and use
    it to build your other systems. man flarcreate

    Default Re: use cpio arcivhe files as jumpstart image

    That was what I did, I built jump1.xx.com, then archive it.
    Use the archive files to build another system jump2.xx.com, after
    completing
    jump2.xx.com keeps rebooting, never stop, it reboot by itself.

    Please help.

    That is not what you SAID you did. If you used flarcreate, why were
    you writing about cpio?

    Did you understand "man flarcreate" in the reply? It means to read the
    manual page for flarcreate which should tell you how to do it properly!
