|Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 Installation Guide: Flash Archives (Creation and Installation) Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 Information Library|
This chapter provides the procedures for creating a Flash Archive, a feature of Oracle Solaris. These procedures include installing a master system and then creating a Flash Archive from that master system. You can also create a differential archive if you have previously installed an archive on a clone system. When the differential archive is created, two images are compared: the unchanged master image and an updated image. The differential archive installs only the differences between the two images. Also, procedures to create scripts are provided to reconfigure or otherwise customize the archive.
For limitations when creating or installing a Flash Archive, see Table 2-1.
