x86: Create the Marketing Group's Profile

For the marketing systems, you create a file that is named marketing_prof in the /jumpstart directory. The marketing_prof file contains the following entries, which define the Solaris 10 9/10 software to be installed on systems in the marketing group:

install_type  initial_install
system_type   standalone
partitioning  default
cluster       SUNWCuser
package       SUNWaudio

The previous example profile specifies the following installation information.


The installation is to be treated as an initial installation, as opposed to an upgrade.


The marketing systems are standalone systems.


The JumpStart software is to use default disk partitioning for installing Solaris on the marketing systems.


The End User Solaris Software Group is to be installed.


The audio demo software package is to be added to each system.
