Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Installation Guide

Solaris 10 Whole Root Zones Example

This is an example of installing Communications Suite software in a Solaris 10 whole root non-global zone.

ProcedureTo Develop a Sequence for Solaris 10 Zones (Whole Root)

The following high-level tasks are required:

  1. Verifying that Solaris 10 is installed on your host

    The global zone is automatically created.

  2. Verifying that all the non-global zones specified in your implementation plan have been created by the global zone administrator as “whole root” zones

    For information on creating non-global zones, refer to Chapter 18, Planning and Configuring Non-Global Zones (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Solaris Zones.

  3. Starting the installer in the global zone, and selecting only shared components at component selection.

    Select only Shared Components at component selection; no other components should be selected. When shared component installation is complete, the shared component are in the global zone and are also propagated to all non-global zones.

    Note –

    Shared components can be installed into a whole root local zone with the exception of Sun Java Web Console. If the installer detects a bundled version of Sun Java Web Console, you cannot proceed until Sun Java Web Console is removed or upgraded from the global zone.

  4. Checking the installation sequence guidelines

    Check to see what guidelines apply to this example and make adjustments as needed.

  5. Checking the installation prerequisites

    Check to see what tasks you might need to perform for this installation before starting.

  6. Starting the installer in the desired non-global zone

  7. At component selection, choosing the components you want

    Some components cannot be installed in a non-global zone because they require access to global zone capabilities. These components are unavailable at component selection.

  8. Running the installation

  9. Viewing the Installation Summary and Log

  10. Completing postinstallation configuration as needed

    Chapter 6, Completing Communications Suite Postinstallation Configuration provides post-installation configuration instructions.

  11. Starting product components

    Chapter 7, Verifying Installed Product Components provides procedures for starting and stopping the product components.

  12. Repeating this process in additional non-global zones as needed
