If you have set up your system to perform automated installations over the network, you also have the option of performing an interactive text installation over the network. Although you can install only a single system at a time with this option, you have the opportunity to customize each installation by using the interactive selections to modify the installation specifications.
For instructions, see Part III, Installing Using an Install Server.
# boot net:dhcp

For instructions, see How to Perform a Text Installation.
Note - The package set installed by the text installer is the solaris-large-server package set. However, the text installer over the network is actually an automated installation. Automated installations are designed to download as much of the needed software as possible from IPS repositories. When you use the text installer over the network, a smaller package set, solaris-auto-install, is installed by default.
This installed system will be very minimal. After booting into the installed system, you should probably install the solaris-large-server package set and, optionally, install a desktop as follows.
# pkg install solaris-desktop
# pkg install solaris-large-server
