ProcedureTo Create a Profile

  1. Use a text editor to create a text file. Name the file descriptively. Or, open a sample profile in the JumpStart directory that you created.

    Note –

    Ensure that the name of the profile reflects how you intend to use the profile to install the Solaris software on a system. For example, you might name the profiles basic_install, eng_profile, or user_profile.

  2. Add profile keywords and values to the profile.

    For a list of profile keywords and values, see Profile Keywords and Values.

    Note –

    Profile keywords and their values are case sensitive.

  3. Save the profile in the JumpStart directory.

  4. Ensure that root owns the profile and that the permissions are set to 644.

  5. Test the profile (optional).
