System Administration Guide: Virtualization Using the Solaris Operating System

ProcedureHow to Install a Subset of the Packages

When installing from CD or ISO images, you can install a subset of the packages on the install media. The available subsets are core, server, desktop, developer, and all.

You must be the global administrator in the global zone to perform this procedure.

  1. Become superuser, or assume the Primary Administrator role.

    To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Using the Solaris Management Tools With RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Install only the server package:

    global# zoneadm -z lx-zone install -d archive_path server
