Advantages of Preconfiguring System Configuration Information
The installation methods require configuration information about a system, such as peripheral devices,
host name, Internet Protocol (IP) address, and naming service. Before the installation tools
prompt you for configuration information, they check for configuration information that is stored
You can choose one of the following ways to preconfigure system information.
Table 2-1 Preconfiguration Options
For more detailed information about choosing a preconfiguration method, see Choosing a Naming Service.
When the Solaris installation program or the custom JumpStartTM installation program detects preconfigured
system information, the installation program does not prompt you to enter the information.
For example, you have several systems and you do not want a time
zone prompt every time you install the current Solaris release on one of
the systems. You can specify the time zone in the sysidcfg file or
the naming service databases. When you install the current Solaris release, the
installation program does not prompt you to type a time zone.
