You can deploy archives by bootable media using either ISO or USB images. You can use this form of deployment if the install client is not networked or if no AI services are available. These media images deploy the contents of the archive non-interactively when the client is booted.
You can use archives in any Oracle Solaris deployment scenario that uses bootable media, such as installing logical domains, Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones and Oracle Solaris instances within Oracle VM from media. For more information about bootable media installations, see How to Deploy a System From a Unified Archive Using Bootable Media.
