|Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 Installation Guide: Flash Archives (Creation and Installation) Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 Information Library|
Before you create and install a flash archive, you must make some decisions about how you want to install the Oracle Solaris OS on your systems. The first time that you install a system, you install with a full archive that is an initial installation. After a system has been installed with an archive, the system can be updated with a differential archive. The differential archive installs only the differences between two archives.
Note - Starting with the Solaris 10 10/09 release, you can set up a JumpStart profile to identify a flash archive of a ZFS root pool.
Review the following limitations before creating and installing a flash archive.
