The installation methods require configuration information about a system, such as peripheral devices, host name, Internet Protocol (IP) address, and naming service. Before the installation tools prompt you for configuration information, they check for configuration information that is stored elsewhere.
The following table describes the ways to preconfigure system information.
Table 2-1 Preconfiguration Options
For more detailed information about choosing a preconfiguration method, see Choosing a Naming Service.
When the Oracle Solaris or the JumpStart, a feature of Oracle Solaris, installation program detects preconfigured system information, the installation program does not prompt you to provide the information. For example, say you have several systems and you do not want a time zone prompt every time you install the current Oracle Solaris release on one of the systems. You can specify the time zone in the sysidcfg file or the naming service databases. When you install the current Oracle Solaris release, the installation program does not prompt you for a time zone value.
