Update the rules File
Now you must add rules to the rules file. The Solaris installation program
uses the rules to select the correct installation (profile) for each system during
a custom JumpStart installation.
At this site, each department is located on its own subnet and has
its own network address. The engineering department is located on subnet 255.222.43.0. The
marketing department is located on 255.222.44.0. You can use this information to control
how the engineering and marketing systems are installed with the Solaris Express 5/07
software. In the /jumpstart directory, you edit the rules file, delete all of
the example rules, and add the following lines to the file:
network 255.222.43.0 - eng_prof -
network 255.222.44.0 - marketing_prof -
Basically, these rules state that systems on the 255.222.43.0 network are to be
installed with the Solaris Express 5/07 software by using the eng_prof profile.
The systems on the 255.222.44.0 network are to be installed with the Solaris
Express 5/07 software by using the marketing_prof profile.
Note - You can use the sample rules to use a network address to identify
the systems to be installed with the Solaris Express 5/07 software by using
eng_prof and marketing_prof, respectively. You can also use host names, memory size, or
model type as the rule keyword. Table 8-1 contains a complete list of keywords you
can use in a rules file.
