Automated Installer Task Map

The automated installer is used to automate the installation of the OpenSolaris OS on one or more SPARC and x86 systems over a network. The minimal configuration necessary to use the automated installer is to have one system as an install server and one client on which to install. On the install server, you set up install services with associated manifests that provide specifications for client installations. Client installations can differ in architecture, packages installed, disk capacity, and other parameters.

The following task map walks you through the overall process of setting up and using the automated installer.
