Now we assume the Everything worked out. The Boothelper did the Job as expected, now its time to get rid of him.

Firstly Disable all the necessary services

svcadm disable network/tftp/udp6:default

svcadm disable network/nfs/server:default

svcadm disable network/rpc/bootparams:default

svcadm disable network/rarp:default

Remove the Content

Remove all the Directories you created Remove /etc/ethers and the Bootparams File.

Possible Mistakes...
