|Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 Installation Guide: Flash Archives (Creation and Installation) Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 Information Library|
This chapter provides step-by-step procedures for installing a Flash Archive, a feature of Oracle Solaris, by using the Oracle Solaris installation program. This chapter also provides references to procedures for installing Flash Archive when using other installation programs. Also, step-by-step procedures for administering an archive are provided.
For limitations when creating or installing a Flash Archive, see Table 2-1.
Caution - When installing the Oracle Solaris OS with a Flash Archive, the archive and the installation media must contain identical operating system versions. For example, if the archive is a Oracle Solaris 10 operating system and you are using DVD media, then you must use Oracle Solaris 10 DVD media to install the archive. If the operating systems versions do not match, the installation on the target system fails.
If you want to use the Oracle Solaris installation program, see Installing a Flash Archive With the Oracle Solaris Installation Program.
If you want to use the custom JumpStart, a feature of Oracle Solaris, installation method or Live Upgrade, a feature of Oracle Solaris, see References to Procedures for Installing Flash Archive.
To split or merge an archive, see Administering Flash Archives.
