Automated installation uses Oracle Solaris's Automated Installer (AI) to execute a "hands-free" OS installation and client-specific configuration. Two methods of automated installation are available:
Using an install media. This method does not require an AI server. You use the media containing the AI image to boot the system and start the installation. See Automated Installations That Boot From Media.
Using an AI server to install on multiple systems. This method requires more preparations to set up the AI server.
