Transitioning to an Oracle Solaris 11 Installation Method

Oracle Solaris 11 introduces new installation features and methods for system administrators. This chapter provides conceptual information and some brief examples to acquaint you with these new methods, including information that applies specifically to Oracle Solaris 11.1. See the relevant Oracle Solaris 11 installation product documentation for detailed installation instructions for the Oracle Solaris 11 release that you are installing. This chapter also includes basic information about migrating from JumpStart to the Automated Installer (AI).

The following topics are covered:

For an end-to-end example of a basic AI installation of a SPARC based system, see Appendix A, SPARC Automated Installation Scenario.

For information about upgrading your Oracle Solaris 11 system to Oracle Solaris 11.1, see Updating to Oracle Solaris 11.2.

For information about how the network is configured during an installation, see How the Network Is Configured During an Installation.
