Solaris Express Installation Guide: Custom JumpStart and Advanced Installations

Limitations for a JumpStart Installation

A number of issues might cause problems during a JumpStart installation. Review the table below for specific information.

Table 6-1 JumpStart Installation Limitations



For More Information

The sample JumpStart script is no longer required to suppress the NFSv4 prompt

Note - In prior releases, the /etc/.NFS4inst_state.domain file was created by the sysidnfs4 program. This file would suppress the prompt for an NFSv4 domain name during installation. This file is no longer created. Use the sysidcfg keyword, nfs4_domain, instead.

nfs4_domain Keyword in Solaris Express Installation Guide: Network-Based Installations

Selecting a keyboard language in the sysidcfg file prevents a prompt

If your keyboard is not self-identifying and you want to prevent being prompted during your JumpStart installation, select the keyboard language in your sysidcfg file. For JumpStart installations, the default is for the U.S. English language. To select another language and its corresponding keyboard layout, set the keyboard keyword in your sysidcfg file.

If you have non-global zones, use Solaris Live Upgrade to upgrade

You can upgrade a system that has non-global zones installed with JumpStart, but Solaris Live Upgrade is the recommended program to upgrade. JumpStart might require extensive upgrade time, because the time required to complete the upgrade increases linearly with the number of installed non-global zones.

Solaris Express Installation Guide: Solaris Live Upgrade and Upgrade Planning

An archive cannot contain non-global zones

If you use a Solaris Flash archive to install, an archive that contains non-global zones is not properly installed on your system.

For general information about creating non-global zones, see System Administration Guide: Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Solaris Zones.

SPARC: Additional hardware requirements

Refer to your hardware documentation for any additional requirements for your platform that might be required to complete a JumpStart installation.
