How to configure TFTP server in Solaris 10?

It is extremely easy to setup on Solaris 10 machines. Total two steps process.

By default, /tftpboot is the location of tftp though it can be changed in /etc/inetd.conf file.

STEP 1) Uncomment tftp line in /etc/inetd.conf file.
STEP 2) Use inetconv command to install tftp SMF and bring it online.


# cat /etc/inetd.conf | grep -i tftp
tftp dgram udp6 wait root /usr/sbin/in.tftpd in.tftpd -s /tftpboot

# inetconv -i /etc/inetd.conf
inetconv: Notice: Service manifest for 100235/1 already generated as /var/svc/manifest/network/rpc/100235_1-rpc_ticotsord.xml, skipped
tftp -> /var/svc/manifest/network/tftp-udp6.xml
Importing tftp-udp6.xml ...Done

# svcs -a | grep -i tftp
online 8:20:39 svc:/network/tftp/udp6:default
