dbprofile to boot from Ignite Server

It is always convenient  to install different Integrity VM (s) or vPar (s) from Ignite server and sometimes (there could be many situations) virtual machines or vPars do not receive IP address from Ignite server.

To proceed in such situations, boot machine (could be virtual) and change to EFI shell and create "dbprofile"

shell> dbprofile -dn -sip -gip -cip -m -b "/opt/ignite/bin/nbp.efi"

This will create dbprofile entry with name .
Now in order to proceed with installation, use following CLI from same shell prompt as below...

shell>lanboot -dn

And voila! Installation proceeds. 

That is it for today.
