Default AI Manifest

When you create a new install service, install-service-image-path/auto_install/manifest/default.xml is the initial default AI manifest for that install service.

This default AI manifest is shown in the below example. This default manifest might be slightly different in different install images.

The target section in the default manifest defines ZFS file systems, or datasets, to be created. The default manifest does not define a target disk for the installation. Refer to the ai_manifest(4) man page for a description of how the default target location for the installation is determined when no target disk is specified in the manifest.

The destination section can be used to specify which locales to install. Facet specifications can be used in the manifest to limit the locales that are installed, which can save time and space if you do not need all locales. If no facets are specified, then facets for all locales default to true. Refer to the ai_manifest(4) man page for more information about setting image facets and attributes.

The software installation instructions specify the default IPS package repository and install the following two packages:

  <ai_instance name="default">
        <zpool name="rpool" is_root="true">
            Subsequent <filesystem> entries instruct an installer to create
            following ZFS datasets:

                <root_pool>/export         (mounted on /export)
                <root_pool>/export/home    (mounted on /export/home)

            Those datasets are part of standard environment and should be
            always created.

            In rare cases, if there is a need to deploy an installed system
            without these datasets, either comment out or remove <filesystem>
            entries. In such scenario, it has to be also assured that
            in case of non-interactive post-install configuration, creation
            of initial user account is disabled in related system
            configuration profile. Otherwise the installed system would fail
            to boot.

        installed from the specified IPS repository.  If another build
        is required, the build number should be appended to the
