./setup_install_server not working on RHEL5


Code:
[root@rhel5srv Tools]# uname -a
Linux rhel5srv 2.6.18-8.el5 #1 SMP Fri Jan 26 14:15:21 EST 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

[root@rhel5srv Tools]# mount
....
/dev/mapper/OsImageVG-rhel5LV on /OSIMAGE/rhel5 type ext3 (rw)
/dev/mapper/OsImageVG-solaris10LV on /OSIMAGE/solaris10 type ext3 (rw)
/dev/hda on /mnt/cdrom type iso9660 (ro)

[root@rhel5srv Tools]# pwd
/mnt/cdrom/Solaris_10/Tools

[root@rhel5srv Tools]# ./setup_install_server /OSIMAGE/solaris10/
./setup_install_server: line 785: mach: command not found
./setup_install_server: line 88: /usr/bin/sed: No such file or directory
./setup_install_server: line 89: [: !=: unary operator expected

Question: I am trying to setup RHEL5 as Solaris 10 install server. I am getting the above error. why is it giving error?

Question: Can i just use cp command to copy entire Solaris 10 DVD on local disk? or running script is required?

It seems you have Solaris10 image at your Redhat machine and you are going to install solaris10 in Redhat itself, isn't it?
Solaris10 is another Unix based operating system you can't install Solaris as software installation in Redhat itself

If you like to use Solaris, use some virtual software and install the solaris virtual machine itself

First of all this is a Solaris based shell script and i hope this is not the way to install Solaris because Solaris is an operation system

NO . U are getting the question wrong or you dont know what this script do.

This script basically copied your Solaris CD/DVD on to local harddisk which will be holding your install files.

This is clearly showing that you are executing solaris script in Redhat. If you want to execute solaris script on linux you should consider the Shell and the commands

Yess sure, because i don't know what is existing in script itself
