Additional Options

In addition to the installation options already described, you have the following options for installing and modifying the Oracle Solaris operating system.

Create Custom Installation Images

You can create a preconfigured Oracle Solaris installation image using the distribution constructor tool. The tool takes a customized XML manifest file as input and builds an installation image that is based on the parameters specified in the manifest file. You can build a custom image based on any of the default installation images. For example, you could build a custom text installer image or a custom GUI installer image. For information, see Creating a Custom Oracle Solaris 11 Installation Image.

Updating an Installed Oracle Solaris 11 System

You cannot use an installer to update an existing Oracle Solaris 11 installed system. Instead, you need to use pkg utility to access package repositories and download new or updated software packages for your system. For further information, see Adding and Updating Oracle Solaris 11 Software Packages.
