Solaris 7 (SPARC Platform Edition) Installation Library

Limitations of Default Installation on Multiple-Disk Systems

If you are installing software on a system that has multiple disks, you should be aware that the Default Installation option sets up only the system disk. Other disks will not be recognized by the operating system unless you manually set up file systems on them, mount the file systems, and create entries for them in /etc/vfstab. For details, see the "Managing File Systems" chapter of System Administration Guide, Volume I, as well as the reference manual page for format.

If you want Solaris Web Start to set up all the disks in your system, use the Customized Installation option and select all those disks using Lay Out File Systems.
