Optimize for Client-Server Configurations

If you are designing a package for a Solaris 2.5 or compatible release, you should consider the various types of system software configurations (for example, standalone, diskless, and server) when laying out packages. Good packaging design divides the affected files to optimize installation of each configuration type. For example, the contents of root (/) and usr should be segmented so that dataless and server configurations can easily be supported.
