On aiserver now there is a script that takes away all the tedium of setting up all the files you need for AI to install a machine.
It also creates a default first boot script and a default derive manifest script .
It asks for lots of information and contains several warnings and instructions, please read carefully all the instructions!!!
Script is here: /export/auto_install/ai-installs/bin/setup-ai-machine.sh
Hopefully I've made the whole process of using AI much easier!!!

The aim of this blog is to fill in the gaps from other notes on using AI with an LDOM, not to repeat the previous notes. Also they do not document installing the hypervisor or the initial set up, there's already Paul E's notes for this.
1. On your AI server, create a client, manifest/ derive script, profile and if relevant, 1st boot script (see previous notes).
2. Confgure your LDOM:
ldm add-domain DOMAIN-NAME
ldm set-vcpu NN DOMAIN-NAME
ldm set-mem NNg DOMAIN-NAME
ldm add-vnet pvid=XXX vnet01 primary-vsw0 DOMAIN-NAME
ldm add-vnet pvid=XXX vnet02 iodomain-vsw0 DOMAIN-NAME
ldm add-vdisk vdisk01 sharedVOLNAME@primary-vds0 DOMAIN-NAME
ldm set-var autoboot?=false DOMAIN-NAME
ldm set-var local-mac-address?=true DOMAIN-NAME
ldm start DOMAIN-NAME
3.You don't have to use DHCP, it's just nicer. I'll document both ways:
a) With no DHCP
ldm set-var network-boot-arguments=host-ip=IPofDOMAIN-NAME,router-ip=XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX,subnet-mask=255.255.255.0,hostname=DOMAIN-NAME,file=http://IPofAISERVER:5555/cgi-bin/wanboot-cgi
On the aiserver in the manifest you cannot use names, you need to use IP addresses as you have no DNS.
telnet 0 500X
ok boot net - install
b) Using DHCP
Set Next Server to the IP of your AI server
Set File Name to:
telnet 0 500X
ok boot vnet01:dhcp - install
