Solaris Express Installation Guide: Custom JumpStart and Advanced Installations
Previous Next

Create an Install Server

Because the groups need to install Solaris Express 5/07 software from the network, you make server-1 an install server for both groups. You use the setup_install_server(1M) command to copy the images to the server-1 local disk (in the /export/install directory). Copy the images from the either of the following media.

  • Solaris Software CDs and the Solaris Languages CDs

  • Solaris Operating System DVD

You must copy the image from the disc to an empty directory, in these examples the sparc_11 directory and the x86_11 directory.

Example 7-1 SPARC: Copying the Solaris Express 5/07 CDs

Insert the Solaris Software for SPARC Platforms - 1 CD in the CD-ROM drive that is attached to server-1 and type the following commands:

server-1# mkdir -p /export/install/sparc_11
server-1# cd /CD_mount_point/Solaris_11/Tools
server-1# ./setup_install_server /export/install/sparc_11

Insert the Solaris Software for SPARC Platforms - 2 CD in the CD-ROM drive that is attached to server-1 and type the following commands:

server-1# cd /CD_mount_point/Solaris_11/Tools
server-1# ./add_to_install_server /export/install/sparc_11

Repeat the previous command for each Solaris Software you want to install.

Insert the first SPARC: Solaris Languages for SPARC Platforms CD in the CD-ROM drive that is attached to server-1 and type the following commands:

server-1# cd /CD_mount_point/Solaris_11/Tools
server-1# ./add_to_install_server /export/install/sparc_11

Repeat the previous command for each SPARC: Solaris Languages for SPARC Platforms CD you want to install.

Example 7-2 x86: Copying the Solaris Express 5/07 CDs

Insert the Solaris Software for x86 Platforms - 1 CD in the CD-ROM drive that is attached to server-1 and type the following commands:

server-1# mkdir -p /export/install/x86_11
server-1# cd /CD_mount_point/Solaris_11/Tools
server-1# ./setup_install_server /export/install/x86_11

Insert the Solaris Software for x86 Platforms - 2 CD in the CD-ROM drive that is attached to server-1 and type the following commands:

server-1# cd /CD_mount_point/Solaris_11/Tools
server-1# ./add_to_install_server /export/install/x86_11

Repeat the previous command for each Solaris Software you want to install.

Insert the first Solaris Languages for x86 Platforms CD in the CD-ROM drive that is attached to server-1 and type the following commands:

server-1# cd /CD_mount_point/Solaris_11/Tools
server-1# ./add_to_install_server /export/install/x86_11

Repeat the previous command for each Solaris Languages for x86 Platforms CD you want to install.

Example 7-3 SPARC: Copying the Solaris Express 5/07 DVD

Insert the Solaris Operating System for SPARC Platforms DVD in the DVD-ROM drive that is attached to server-1 and type the following commands:

server-1# mkdir -p /export/install/sparc_11
server-1# cd /DVD_mount_point/Solaris_11/Tools
server-1# ./setup_install_server /export/install/sparc_11
Example 7-4 x86: Copying the Solaris Operating System for x86 Platforms DVD

Insert the Solaris Operating System for x86 Platforms DVD in the DVD-ROM drive that is attached to server-1 and type the following commands:

server-1# mkdir -p /export/install/x86_11
server-1# cd /DVD_mount_point/Solaris_11/Tools
server-1# ./setup_install_server /export/install/x86_11
