usbcopy - Utility for deploying Oracle Solaris USB install media
The usbcopy command enables users to deploy removable USB stick with Oracle Solaris USB install image created by Distribution Constructor. The USB stick can later be used to install Oracle Solaris OS.
The usbcopy command supports deployment of both SPARC and x86 install images. The deployment process is platform independent.
