|Sun Installation Assistant 2.3 through 2.4 User's Guide for x64 Servers Sun Fire X4640 Server Documentation Library|
This section explains how to boot the Sun Installation Assistant (SIA) from a Preboot Execution Environment (PXE) and run it in attended (interactive) mode or unattended mode. These instructions are for advanced users familiar with PXE and apply, at a minimum, to SIA version 2.3.
SIA can be booted from a Linux-based PXE environment to perform deployment tasks in attended or unattended mode. In attended mode, you use SIA as you normally would to perform tasks using the interactive graphical interface. In unattended mode, SIA will automatically perform server installation tasks, such as operating system installation (of supported Linux or Windows versions) or firmware upgrades, without user intervention.
