Using Automated Installer Install Service to Deploy a Unified Archive

(Doc ID 2131241.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 07, 2017

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 11.2 and later
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)

Goal

 This document will show how to deploy a UAR using Solaris 11.3 using an AI service that was installed with a ISO created from a UAR file.

 The scope of this document covers:

NOTE:
Another way to deploy a UAR is by booting media and installing using the UAR file over the network using a web server.
With that method you do not need to setup an AI Install Server Service as shown in this doc here: Automated Installations That Boot From Media

Thus, there are primarily 2 methods to deploy a UAR. One using a AI server and the other using bootable media.

Both are covered under the Solaris 11.x documentation as shown below.
