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

ProcedureTo Create a Compressed Configuration File

  1. Change the directory to the JumpStart directory on the profile server.

    # cd jumpstart_dir_path
  2. Use a compression tool to compress the custom JumpStart configuration files into one file.

    Note –

    The compressed configuration file cannot contain relative paths. The custom JumpStart configuration files must be in the same directory as the compressed file.

    The compressed configuration file must contain the following files:

    • Profile

    • rules

    • rules.ok

    You can also include the sysidcfg file in the compressed configuration file.

  3. Save the compressed configuration file on an NFS server, an HTTP server, or on a local hard disk.
