NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       pmerge - Builds a network bootable kernel.

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       /usr/sys/bin/pmerge bootfile kernel.name new.kernel

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  kernel, vmunix, is not bootable over the network. The
       pmerge utility prepends the bootfile onto the kernel image
       (kernel.name)  to  create  a  new  operating  system image
       (new.kernel) that is bootable over the network.

       Instead of a booting a  network  loadable  kernel,  it  is
       sometimes desired to bootstrap link a kernel over the network.
  In this case, (kernel.name)  is  the  name  of  the
       sysconfigtab  file  on  the  server containing the list of
       modules to be loaded to the  client.   These  modules  are
       then linked to create a bootable kernel on the client.

       The  pmerge  utility  is  used  by doconfig(8) to create a
       bootable operating system for dataless management services
       (DMS)  client systems to boot over the network. The pmerge
       utility is automatically invoked by doconfig(8) during the
       kernel  build  process  and should not be invoked independently.

       The      pmerge      utility      is      located       in
       /var/adm/dms/dmsn.alpha/root/usr/sys/bin    on   the   DMS
