|Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 Installation Guide: Solaris Flash Archives (Creation and Installation)|
This chapter provides the procedures for creating a Solaris Flash archive. These procedures include installing a master system and then creating a Solaris Flash archive from that master system. You can also create a differential archive if you have previously installed an archive on a clone system. When the differential archive is created, two images are compared: the unchanged master image and an updated image. The differential archive installs only the differences between the two images. Also, procedures to create scripts are provided to reconfigure or otherwise customize the archive.
For limitations when creating or installing a Solaris Flash archive, see Table 2-1.
