Solaris 9 Installation Guide

SPARC: Create the Engineering Group's Profile

For the engineering systems, you create a file that is named eng_prof in the /jumpstart directory. The eng_prof file contains the following entries, which define the Solaris 9 software to be installed on systems in the engineering group:

install_type  initial_install1
system_type   standalone2
partitioning  default3
cluster       SUNWCprog4
filesys       any 512 swap5
  1. Specifies that the installation is to be treated as an initial installation, as opposed to an upgrade.

  2. Specifies that the engineering systems are standalone systems.

  3. Specifies that the JumpStart software uses default disk partitioning for installing Solaris software on the engineering systems.

  4. Specifies that the Developer System Support software group is to be installed.

  5. Specifies that each system in the engineering group is to have 512 Mbytes of swap space.
