Solaris 10 Installation Guide for IBM BladeCenter Servers

ProcedureHow to Create a Profile

  1. Using a text editor, create a text file. Name the file descriptively. Or, open a sample profile in the JumpStart directory that you created.

    Note –

    Ensure that the name of the profile reflects how you intend to use the profile to install the Solaris software on a system. For example, you might name the profiles basic_install, eng_profile, or user_profile.

  2. Add profile keywords and values to the profile.

    See Profile Examples.

    Note –

    Profile keywords and their values are case-sensitive.

  3. Save the profile in the JumpStart directory.

  4. Ensure that root owns the profile and that the permissions are set to 644.

  5. (Optional) Test the profile.
