SFHA Solutions 6.0.1: Installing the Solaris 11 operating system using the Automated Installer

Level 4
Employee Accredited

You can use the Oracle Solaris Automated Installer (AI) to install the Solaris 11 operating system on multiple client systems in a network. The AI enables you to install both x86 and SPARC systems “hands free” without any manual interaction. You can also use the AI media to install the Oracle Solaris operating system (OS) on a single SPARC or x86 platform. All cases require access to a package repository on the network to complete the installation.

You can download the AI bootable image from the Oracle website.

You can install the Oracle Solaris OS on many different types of clients. The clients can differ in architecture, memory characteristics, MAC address, IP address, and CPU. The installations can differ depending on specifications including the network configuration and the packages installed.
