arch

arch

Determines the kernel architecture, i386 or SPARC, and sets SI_ARCH.

disksize

disks

Returns the size of a system's disks in Mbytes in kernel probe order, c0t3d0s0, c0t3d0s1, c0t4d0s0. disksize sets SI_DISKLIST, SI_DISKSIZES, SI_NUMDISKS, and SI_TOTALDISK.

domainname

domainname

Returns a system's NIS or NIS+ domain name or blank and sets SI_DOMAINNAME. The domainname keyword returns the output of domainname(1M).

hostaddress

hostaddress

Returns a system's IP address, the first address that is listed in the output of ifconfig(1M) -a that is not lo0, and sets SI_HOSTADDRESS.

hostname

hostname

Returns a system's host name that is the output from uname(1) -n and sets SI_HOSTNAME.

installed

installed

Returns the version name of the Solaris OS that is installed on a system and sets SI_ROOTDISK and SI_INSTALLED.

If the JumpStart program finds a Solaris release but is unable to determine the version, the version that is returned is SystemV.

karch

Returns a system's platform name and sets SI_MODEL. For a list of platform names, see the Solaris Sun Hardware Platform Guide at https://docs.sun.com.

network

network

Returns a system's network number, which the JumpStart program determines by performing a logical AND between the system's IP address and the subnet mask. The system's IP address and the subnet mask are extracted from the first address that is listed in the output of ifconfig(1M) -a that is not lo0. The network keyword sets SI_NETWORK.

osname

osname

Returns the version and operating system name of the Solaris OS that is found on a CD and sets SI_OSNAME.

If the JumpStart program finds a Solaris release but is unable to determine the version, the version that is returned is SystemV.

 

rootdisk

Returns the name and size in Mbytes of a system's root disk and sets SI_ROOTDISK.

totaldisk

totaldisk

Returns the total disk space on a system (in Mbytes) and sets SI_TOTALDISK. The total disk space includes all of the operational disks that are attached to a system.
