To provision servers other than Sun Fire V20z servers, you need to modify the default profile, create a new OS profile, or clone an existing OS profile and customize the parameter settings. Each server at your site with different hardware and provisioning requirements requires the creation of a customized OS profile.
The browser interface provides a wizard for creating new OS profiles to limit the complexity of this operation. See To Create an OS Profile for instructions.
Some best practices for modifying default OS profiles are:
To increase the speed of OS configuration, modify OS profiles to use flash archives. See Example 2–9 for examples of how to modify a default profile and To Copy a Flash Archive to the Management Server for instructions.
Modify the default OS profile for a server other than a V20z server, remember to remove the existing partitions and add new partition information that is appropriate for the server model. See To Modify the Default Solaris OS Profile for a Sun Fire V40z or a SPARC V440 Server for instructions.
