Common Error Messages When Deploying an Archive

Failed Checkpoints: target-selection Checkpoint execution error: Unable to locate the disk 'c1d0' on the system'

Solution:  The archive which contains non-root data is being deployed without a target specification for non-root pools. Solaris Automated Installer will auto-select a boot device to install the root pool to, but non-root pool targets must be specified. Add targets for non-root pools to enable the deployment to proceed.

IPS publishers are required

Solution:  Various types of archive deployments (for example, nonglobal-to-global zone transforms) require access to IPS publishers during deployment. Publishers are specified in an AI manifest and must be reachable during deployment from the client.

zone of this brand not in archive archive.uar: Unified archive not usable

Solution:  When deploying an archive to a zone, the brand in the zone configuration is not compatible with the brand of the zones in the unified archive. Either select an archive with a matching brand or change the brand.
