Assisted OS Installation

Note - Oracle System Assistant does not currently support the Oracle Solaris OS for assisted installation.

This is the easiest method for installing a supported OS on the server. This method involves using the Oracle System Assistant application. You deliver the Oracle Solaris OS installation media on either a local or remote CD/DVD drive or CD/DVD image, and use the Oracle System Assistant Install OS task to initiate the installation process. To use the Install OS task, Oracle System Assistant must support the OS for assisted installation.

For server-related updates and information, refer to the Sun Blade X3-2B (formerly Sun Blade X6270 M3) Product Notes.
