Installing and Administering Solaris Flash Archives (Tasks)

This chapter provides step-by-step procedures for installing a Solaris Flash archive by using the Solaris installation program. This chapter also provides references to procedures for installing Solaris Flash archives when using other installation programs. Also, step-by-step procedures for administering an archive are provided.

For limitations when creating or installing a Solaris Flash archive, see Table 2-1.


Caution - When installing the Solaris OS with a Solaris Flash archive, the archive and the installation media must contain identical operating system versions. For example, if the archive is a Solaris 10 operating system and you are using DVD media, then you must use Solaris 10 DVD media to install the archive. If the operating systems versions do not match, the installation on the target system fails.
