This release supports the following Solaris installation tools:
Solaris custom JumpstartTM - You cannot include Solaris ZFS file systems in a Jumpstart profile. However, you can run the following scripts from a Solaris ZFS storage pool to set up an install server or an install client:
Solaris Live Upgrade - Preserves your original boot environment and carries over your Solaris ZFS storage pools into the new environment. Currently, Solaris ZFS cannot be used as a bootable root file system. Therefore, your existing Solaris ZFS file systems are not copied into the boot environment (BE).
Solaris Initial Install - Solaris ZFS file systems are not recognized during an initial installation. However, if you do not specify any of the disk devices that contain Solaris ZFS storage pools to be used for the installation, you should be able to recover your storage pools by using the zpool import command after the installation. For more information, see the zpool(1M) man page.
As with most reinstallation scenarios, you should back up your Solaris ZFS files before proceeding with the initial installation option.
Solaris Upgrade – Your Solaris ZFS file systems and storage pools are preserved.
