Solaris Express Installation Guide: Planning for Installation and Upgrade

What's New in the Solaris Express 5/06 Release for Installation

NFSv4 Domain Name Configurable During Installation

Starting with the Solaris Express 5/06 release, the NFS version 4 domain can now be defined during the installation of the Solaris OS. Previously, the NFS domain name was defined during the first system reboot after installation.

This new feature affects installation as follows:

  • The sysidtool command includes an enhanced sysidnfs4 program. The sysidnfs4 program now runs during the installation process to determine whether an NFSv4 domain has been configured for the network.

    For further information, see the sysidtool(1M) and sysidnfs4(1M) man pages.

    During an interactive installation, the user is provided with the default NFSv4 domain name that is automatically derived from the OS. The user can accept this default. Or, the user can specify a different NFSv4 domain.

  • As part of a Solaris JumpStart installation, a new keyword is available in the sysidcfg file. The user can now assign a value for the NFSv4 domain by using the new keyword, nfs4_domain.
