If you use Automated Installer (AI) to deploy an archive, ensure that you have a compatible AI service and AI manifest. For example, if the archived system is Oracle Solaris 11.3, any Oracle Solaris 11.3 or 11.3 SRU version AI service is compatible. Each archive does not require its own service. The specific archive deployed is determined by the manifest used for a specific deployment.
Before You Begin
You must be an administrator with the correct rights profiles to perform this task. See Using Rights Profiles with Unified Archives.
You must have an existing AI server with correct configurations, including the correct web server file directories. For details, see Configuring an AI Server in Automatically Installing Oracle Solaris 11.4 Systems.
$ installadm create-service -n new-service -s iso-image
Ensure that the ISO file includes the FMRI location for the current operating system version.
$ installadm create-client -e client-MAC-address -n image-location
Either edit the default manifest XML file or create a new manifest XML file referencing the archive changes. On the manifest, specify the following:
See Example XML Manifests for Archive Deployment for reference.
Refer to Creating and Customizing an AI Manifest in Customizing Automated Installations With Manifests and Profiles for different ways of creating and editing AI manifests.
$ installadm create-manifest -n new-service -m manifest -f file
$ installadm list -n new-service
$ installadm list -n new-service -m
