This section describes some of the configuration you might want to perform on the install server to prepare for AI client installations.
By default, the AI install server is configured to serve install clients on all networks that the server is connected to if the server is multihomed. To modify this configuration, adjust the all_services/networks and all_services/exclude_networks properties of the svc:/system/install/server:default SMF service.
The value of the all_services/networks property is a list of networks in CIDR format (for example, 192.168.56.0/24). The value of the all_services/exclude_networks property is a boolean true/false that specifies how the all_services/networks property is processed. If exclude_networks is false, the AI install server only serves the networks listed in the networks property. If exclude_networks is true, the AI install server does not serve the networks listed in the networks property.
The following commands reconfigure an AI install server that is connected to three networks to serve installations on only one network. In this example, the multihomed AI install server is connected to the following three networks: 192.168.56.0/24, 126.96.36.199/24, and 188.8.131.52/24. Run the following commands to serve installations on only the 192.168.56.0/24 network:
# svccfg -s system/install/server:default \ setprop all_services/networks = 192.168.56.0/24 # svcadm refresh system/install/server:default
An AI server hosts install services using a web server. By default, the web server is hosted on port 5555. To customize the port that hosts the install services web server, configure the all_services/port property of the svc:/system/install/server:default SMF service. The following commands configure the AI server to host install services from port 7000:
# svccfg -s system/install/server:default setprop all_services/port = 7000 # svccfg refresh system/install/server:default
Note - Customize the port property before creating any install services. If the port property is modified after install services are created, those existing install services will no longer function properly and will need to be deleted and recreated.
