Using a Site-Specific Installation Program

You can also use begin and finish scripts to create your own installation program to install Solaris software.

When you specify a minus sign (-) in the profile field, begin and finish scripts control how Solaris software is installed on a system instead of the profile and the Solaris installation program.

For example, if the following rule matches a system, the x_install.beg begin script and the x_install.fin finish script install Solaris software on the system that is named clover:

hostname clover x_install.beg - x_install.fin
