SPARC: Create the Engineering Group's Profile

For the engineering systems, create a file that is named eng_prof in the /jumpstart directory. The eng_prof file contains the following entries, which define the Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 software to be installed on systems in the engineering group:

install_type  initial_install
system_type   standalone
partitioning  default
cluster       SUNWCprog
filesys       any 512 swap

The previous example profile specifies the following installation information:


The installation is to be treated as an initial installation, as opposed to an upgrade.


The engineering systems are stand-alone systems.


The JumpStart software uses default disk partitioning for installing Oracle Solaris software on the engineering systems.


The Developer System Support software group is to be installed.


Each system in the engineering group is to have 512 MB of swap space.
