|Oracle Solaris Administration: SAN Configuration and Multipathing Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library|
If you select an automatic installation and you want to select specific devices to be installed during the installation, see Installing Oracle Solaris 11 Systems.
After installing the HBA, perform the following steps for a DVD installation or a network-based installation of the Oracle Solaris OS on an x86 based system.
For more information, refer to Installing Oracle Solaris 11 Systems.
Automatic installation – You can begin the automated installation by selecting a network boot from the x86 system's BIOS. If you select an automatic installation, skip to step 7.
Text installation – You can begin a text installation by selecting the following option from the GRUB menu when booted from media or when booted from an installation server.
Oracle Solaris 11 11/11 Text Installer and command line
After the installation is complete, you can exit the installer and configure the devices.
Automatic installation – By default, a system is not rebooted after the installation because of the following manifest keywords in the /usr/share/auto_install/default.xml file. This means you can configure your devices before the system reboots.
<auto_install> <ai_instance name="default"> . . .
If a previous installation set the following keyword value to true, change this value to false so that you can configure your devices before the system reboots.
<auto_install> <ai_instance name="default" auto_reboot="true"> . . .
Text installation – When the installation is complete, select the Quit option to exit the installer to configure your devices.
See Figure 10-1.

Figure 10-1 luxadm display Command and Output
The following luxadm command output from the example in the figure can be used to map the MPxIO based c#t#d# to the HBA WWN and array WWN:
MPxIO c#t#d# = c0t600015d00020280000000000000001142d0
Array WWN = 213600015d207200, LUN 0
HBA WWNs = 210100e08b206812 and 210100e08b30a2f2
In this menu, you can select the boot device/LUN by the array WWPN.

The figure shows the following modifications:
Selectable boot = Enabled
ARRAY WWN = 213600015d207200
ARRAY LUN = 0
HBA WWN = 210100e08b206812
