Begin and finish scripts are user-defined Bourne shell scripts that you specify in the rules file. A begin script performs tasks before the Solaris software is installed on a system. A finish script performs tasks after the Solaris software is installed on a system, but before the system reboots. You can use these scripts only when using custom JumpStart to install Solaris.
You can use begin scripts to create derived profiles. Finish scripts enable you to perform various postinstallation tasks, such as adding files, packages, patches, or additional software.
You must store the begin and finish scripts in the same directory as the sysidcfg, rules.ok, and profile files on the install server.
