Solaris 10 10/08 Installation Guide: Custom JumpStart and Advanced Installations

Non-Interactive Installations With Finish Scripts

You can use finish scripts to install additional software after the Solaris OS is installed. The Solaris installation program prompts you to enter information during the installation. To maintain a hands-off installation, you can run the Solaris installation program with the -nodisplay or -noconsole options.

Table 4–1 Solaris Installation Options




Runs the installer without a graphic user interface. Use the default product installation unless the installation was modified by the -locales option.


Runs the installation without any interactive text console device. Useful when paired with -nodisplay for UNIX script use.
