System Administration Guide: Virtualization Using the Solaris Operating System

ISO Image Installation

To use the ISO image, use the -l option with a full path to the ISO image. If a full path is given instead of the nfs:mach_name:path format of a network installation, then virt-install assumes that this is an ISO image:

-l /net/install/export/xvm/solarisdvd.iso

Example 39–2 ISO Image

virt-install -n gath-01 -r 1000 --nographics -f /dev/dsk/c1t0d0s3 \
-m aa:04:03:35:a8:06 -p \
-l /net/install48/export/xvm/solarisdvd.iso

Note –

You can quote arguments to options. While arguments, such as the path to an ISO image, are generally not quoted on the command line, quotes might be used in scripts.

-l "/net/install48/export/xvm/solarisdvd.iso"
