Install the AI Installation Tools

The AI installation tools package provides the installadm(1M) command that enables you to create and maintain AI install services.

The installadm command enables you to accomplish the following tasks:

See Maintain an Install Server and Oracle Solaris 11 Installation Man Pages for more information about the installadm command.

To install the tools package, your AI install server must be able to access an Oracle Solaris Image Packaging System (IPS) software package repository. Make sure you are connected to the Internet or to a local IPS package server that contains the install/installadm package.

Use the pkg list command to determine whether the installadm package is already installed on this system.

$ pkg list installadm
pkg list: no packages matching 'installadm' installed

Use the -a option to make sure your IPS package repository contains the installadm package.

$ pkg list -a installadm

install/installadm                                     0.5.11- ---

If more than one publisher is defined for this image, use the -v option to show which publisher provides the installadm package.

$ pkg list -av installadm

pkg://solaris/install/installadm@0.5.11,5.11- ---

Use the pkg publisher command to show the origin for the publisher. In this example, a local copy of the solaris repository has been made.

# pkg publisher

solaris                   origin  online  file:///export/Solaris11/  (non-sticky) origin  online

Use the pkg install command to install the installadm package.

# pkg install install/installadm
