Sun Java Communications Suite 5 Installation Guide

Solaris 10 Sparse Root Zones Example

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

ProcedureTo Develop a Sequence For Solaris 10 Zones (Sparse Root)

  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 “sparse 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. Checking the installation sequence guidelines

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

  4. Checking the installation prerequisites

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

  5. 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.

  6. If Message Queue is being used, upgrading Message Queue in the global zone

    Message Queue comes bundled with Solaris 10 and an incompatible version must be upgraded or removed. After upgrade, Message Queue is in the global zone and is also propagated to the non-global zones.

  7. If Application Server is being used, Application Server must be removed.

    Application Server comes bundled in Solaris 10 and must be removed from the global zone. Use the pkginfo —I | grep —I “application server” command to list the Application Server packages that are on the host. After removing the Application Server packages, Application Server can be installed with the other product components in the non-global zone.

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

  9. 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.

  10. Running the installation

  11. Viewing the Installation Summary and Log

  12. Completing postinstallation configuration as needed

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

  13. Starting product components

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

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