Starting with this release, you can register the Solaris OS by using one of the following methods:
Basic Registration 1.1 - Use this method if you want to use Sun Connection's hosted deployment architecture or Update Manager.
Solaris Registration - Use this method if you want to use Sun Connection to maintain an inventory of systems that you have registered.
Basic Registration 1.1 is a system administration feature that was introduced in the Solaris 10 6/06 release. The Basic Registration feature enables you to create a registration profile and ID to automate your Solaris 10 software registrations for the Update Manager. The Update Manager is the single system update client that is used by Sun Connection. Sun Connection was formerly known as Sun Update Connection System Edition. The Basic Registration wizard appears on system reboot. For information on the Basic Registration 1.1 feature , see Basic Registration 1.1.
