pmerge - Builds a network bootable kernel.
/usr/sys/bin/pmerge bootfile kernel.name new.kernel
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 server.
Commands: dmu(8), doconfig(8)
