type – Use one of the following values:
default – The JumpStart program selects the disks and creates the file systems on which to install the specified software, except for any file systems that are specified by the filesys keywords. rootdisk is selected first. The JumpStart program uses additional disks if the specified software does not fit on rootdisk.
existing – The JumpStart program uses the existing file systems on the system's disks. All file systems except /, /usr, /usr/openwin, /opt, and /var are preserved. The JumpStart program uses the last mount–point field from the file system superblock to determine which file system mount point the slice represents.
When you use both the filesys and partitioning existing profile keywords, you must set size size to existing.
explicit – The JumpStart program uses the disks and creates the file systems that are specified by the filesys keywords. If you specify only the root (/) file system with the filesys keyword, all of the Solaris software is installed in the root (/) file system.
If you use the explicit profile value, you must use the filesys keyword to specify the disks to use and file systems to create.
If you do not specify partitioning in the profile, the default type of partitioning is used by default.
