Using Optional Custom JumpStart Features (Tasks)

This chapter describes the optional features that are available to create additional custom JumpStart installation tools.

Note - If you are installing a Solaris ZFS root pool, see Chapter 9, Installing a ZFS Root Pool With JumpStart for limitations and profile examples.

Note - Instructions in this chapter are valid for either a SPARC server or an x86 server that is being used to provide custom JumpStart files, called a profile server. A profile server can provide custom JumpStart files for different platform types. For example, a SPARC server can provide custom JumpStart files for both SPARC based systems and x86 based systems.
