You can use distro_const command options to stop and restart the build process at various checkpoints during the image-generation process in order to check and debug your selection of files, packages, and scripts for the image that is being built.
Before You Begin
You need to have selected a manifest to use before building an installation image. See Selecting a Manifest to Use when Building an Installation Image.
For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.3.
# distro_const build -l /var/tmp/test.xml
Checkpoint Resumable Description -------------- --------- ------------- transfer-ips-install X Transfer package contents from IPS set-ips-attributes X Set post-installation IPS attributes pre-pkg-img-mod X Pre-package image modification ba-init X Boot archive initialization ba-config X Boot archive configuration ba-arch X Boot archive archiving boot-setup Setup LiveCD boot menu pkg-img-mod Package image area modifications create-iso ISO image creation create-usb USB image creation
The following command starts building an image and pauses the build before ba-arch modifies the image area:
# distro_const build -p ba-arch /var/tmp/test.xml
The following command resumes building the image at the ba-arch stage.
# distro_const build -r ba-arch /var/tmp/test.xml
The build output displays the location of log files.
