Installation Target Options

With the exception of the embedded Oracle System Assistant USB flash drive (which is reserved for Oracle System Assistant) and the optional NVMe storage drives (located in the server front panel), you can install the operating system on any of the storage drives installed in the server. These include hard disk drives (HDDs) and solid state drives (SSDs).

Note -  NVMe drives are supported on servers running the Oracle Solaris operating system, However, NVMe drives should not be used as installation targets because these drives do not support booting of operating systems.

For servers equipped with Fibre Channel PCIe host bus adapters (HBAs), you can choose to install the operating system to an external fibre channel storage device.
