Solaris 10 10/08 Installation Guide: Custom JumpStart and Advanced Installations

SPARC: Create the Engineering Group's Profile

For the engineering systems, you create a file that is named eng_prof in the /jumpstart directory. The eng_prof file contains the following entries, which define the Solaris 10 10/08 software to be installed on systems in the engineering group:

install_type  initial_install
system_type   standalone
partitioning  default
cluster       SUNWCprog
filesys       any 512 swap

The previous example profile specifies the following installation information.


The installation is to be treated as an initial installation, as opposed to an upgrade.


The engineering systems are standalone systems.


The JumpStart software uses default disk partitioning for installing Solaris software on the engineering systems.


The Developer System Support software group is to be installed.


Each system in the engineering group is to have 512 Mbytes of swap space.
