What's New in the Solaris 10 10/09 Release

Starting with the Solaris 10 10/09 release, you can set up a JumpStart profile to identify a flash archive of a ZFS root pool.

A Flash archive can be created on a system that is running a UFS root file system or a ZFS root file system. A Flash archive of a ZFS root pool contains the entire pool hierarchy, except for the swap and dump volumes, and any excluded datasets. The swap and dump volumes are created when the Flash archive is installed.

You can use the Flash archive installation method as follows:

For detailed instructions and limitations, see Installing a ZFS Root File System (Oracle Solaris Flash Archive Installation) in Oracle Solaris ZFS Administration Guide.
