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

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

       Instead of a booting a network loadable kernel, it is sometimes desired
       to  bootstrap  link  a  kernel  over  the network.  In this case, (ker‐ 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  operat‐
       ing  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

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