Default AI Manifest

When you create a new install service, install_service_image_path/auto_install/manifest/default.xml is the initial default AI manifest for that install service.

This default AI manifest is shown below. This default manifest might be slightly different in different install images.

The target section in the default manifest defines ZFS file systems, or datasets, to be created. The default manifest does not define a target disk for the installation. Refer to the ai_manifest(4) man page for a description of how the default target location for the installation is determined when no target disk is specified in the manifest.

The destination section can be used to specify which locales to install. Facet specifications can be used in the manifest to limit which locales should be installed, which can save time and space if you do not need all locales. If no facets are specified, then facets for all locales default to true. Refer to the ai_manifest(4) man page for more information about setting image facets and attributes.

The software installation instructions specify the default IPS package repository and install the following two packages:

        By default the latest build available, in the specified IPS
        repository, is installed.  If another build is required, the
        build number has to be appended to the 'entire' package in the
        following form:
