AI Server Setup Task Map

The following task map summarizes the steps to set up an AI server.

Table 2-1 Task Map

Check whether the server meets the minimum hardware requirements to be an AI server.
Make sure the AI server is running the Oracle Solaris 11 Express operating system. Check other software requirements for the AI server.
Configure the AI server to use a static IP address.
Install the AI tool set.
Get an AI install image.
Set up an install service.
See Create an AI Install Service. You need a separate install service for each architecture you want to install because an install service is associated with only one install image.
Review default installation specifications.
If the default installation specifications are not suitable for your clients, you can customize the instructions. See Review the Default Installation Instructions.
