System Administration Guide, Volume 1

IA: Menus Displayed During the Device Identification Phase

Several menus are displayed as the Configuration Assistant attempts to identify devices on the system.

IA: Configuration Assistant Screen

This screen appears each time you boot the Configuration Assistant and access the menus. The Configuration Assistant runs every time the system is booted, although the autoboot process bypasses the menus.

Solaris Device Configuration Assistant

The Solaris(TM) (Intel Platform Edition) Device Configuration Assistant
scans to identify system hardware, lists identified devices, and can
boot the Solaris software from a specified device. This program must be
used to install the Solaris operating environment, add a driver,
or change the hardware on the system.
> To perform a full scan to identify all system hardware, choose Continue.
> To diagnose possible full scan failures, choose Specific Scan.
> To add new or updated device drivers, choose Add Driver.
