Using Unified Archives for System Recovery and Cloning in Oracle Solaris 11.2

Updated: July 2014

Unified Archive Deployment and AI Profiles

Deployment scenarios that support the use of Automated Installer (AI) profiles are supported with Unified Archives, including standard AI deployments, as well as Oracle Solaris Zones installation using the zoneadm command.

For archive types that retain system configuration information, this configuration will be overridden if a sysconfig profile is used. If a sysconfig profile is not used, the interactive system configuration screen will be invoked on the console for some archive deployments. For more information, see Chapter 11, Configuring the Client System, in Installing Oracle Solaris 11.2 Systems .

Due to sysconfig's support for SMF configuration layering, some SMF configuration data may be retained in a recovery archive deployment even if a sysconfig profile is used to override it. Any information not overridden in a sysconfig profile will carry through into a deployment. For more information, see Repository Layers in Managing System Services in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .
