How to Build an Image in One Step

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.

  1. Become an administrator.

    For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.3.

  2. Build the installation image.
    # distro_const build /var/tmp/test.xml

    The distribution constructor pulls the needed packages for the image and builds the image to the specifications that you set up in the DC manifest file.

  3. (Optional) View the log file for the build process.

    The build output displays the location of log files.
