What are the new features for Solaris Install in the Solaris 10 OS?
Quite a few new features and enhancements went into the Solaris 10 OS from the Solaris Install team. The major features are:
  • The interactive install methods (cd0, ttinstall, wizard install) are unified to provide consistent interface and functionality to the installer. In Solaris 9 and before, depending on the image, the installer gets a different install method. In Solaris 10, irrespective of the image, the installer will always get the same interface on the same machine and the system selects the best install method. If the installer is more comfortable with text-based install, the system-selected install method can be overridden. The tip line install is made as ttinstall always.
  • Solaris Software 1 CD is a bootable CD, and Solaris 10 can be installed using the Solaris Software 1 CD.
  • The custom JumpStart installation method now enables you to create RAID-1 volumes (mirrors) during the installation of the Solaris OS. By mirroring file systems, you can protect your system by duplicating data over two physical disks. If one of the mirrored disks fails, the system data is still accessible from the second mirrored disk.
  • Customizing a Solaris Flash installation with additional packages during JumpStart install.
  • JumpStart installation with additional packages that might not be part of the Solaris distribution.
  • JumpStart installation with the ability to install Solaris OS patches.
  • Booting and installing flash over http (WAN Install).
  • Differential flash
