Hit ESC – F2 to continue Screen 26 : Select Disks

You must select the disks for installing Solaris software. If there are several disks available,

I always install the Solaris software on the boot disk c0t0d0.

Disk Device (Size) Available Space

=============================================

[X] c0t0d0 (14592 MB) boot disk 14592 MB (F4 to edit) Total Selected: 14592 MB

Suggested Minimum: 974 MB —————————————————————-

I generally select ESC – F4 to edit the c0t0d0 disk to ensure that the root directory is going to be located on this disk.

On this screen you can select the disk for installing the root (/) file system of the Solaris software.

Original Boot Device : c0t0d0 Disk

==============================================

[X] c0t0d0 (F4 to select boot device)

On this screen, I typically select ESC – F4 to select boot device to ensure the root file system will be located on slice zero, c0t0d0s0.

On this screen you can select the specific slice for the root (/) file

system. If you choose Any of the Above, the Solaris installation program will choose a slice for you.

Original Boot Device : c0t0d0s0 [X] c0t0d0s0

[ ] c0t0d0s1 [ ] c0t0d0s2

[ ] c0t0d0s3 [ ] c0t0d0s4

[ ] c0t0d0s5 [ ] c0t0d0s6

[ ] c0t0d0s7 [ ] Any of the Above

Hit ESC – F2 to after selecting Disk Slice

Hit ESC – F2 to continue with your Boot Disk selection

Screen 27 : Reconfigure EEPROM? Do you want to update the system’s hardware (EEPROM) to always boot from c0t0d0?

Hit ESC – F2 to Reconfigure EEPROM and Continue Screen 28 : Preserve Data?

Do you want to preserve existing data? At least one of the disks you’ve selected for installing Solaris software has file systems or unnamed slices that you may want to save. Hit ESC – F2 to continue

Screen 29 : Automatically Layout File Systems? Do you want to use auto-layout to automatically layout file systems? Manually laying out file systems requires advanced system administration skills.

I typically perform an “Auto” File System Layout (F2_Auto Layout). Hit ESC – F2 to Perform Auto Layout.

Screen 30 : Automatically Layout File Systems On this screen you must select all the file systems you want auto-layout to create, or accept the default file systems shown.

File Systems for Auto-layout

========================================

[X] / [ ] /opt

[ ] /usr [ ] /usr/openwin

[ ] /var [X] swap

Hit ESC – F2 to continue Screen 31 : File System and Disk Layout

The summary below is your current file system and disk layout, based on the information you’ve supplied. NOTE: If you choose to customize, you should understand file systems, their intended purpose on the disk, and how changing them may affect the operation of the system.

File system/Mount point Disk/Slice Size =================================================

/ c0t0d0s0 1338 MB swap c0t0d0s1 296 MB

overlap c0t0d0s2 38162 MB /export/home c0t0d0s7 36526 MB

I generally select ESC – F4 (F4_Customize) to edit the partitions for disk c0t0d0. If this is a workstation, I make only three partitions:

/ : I often get the sizes for the individual filesystems (/usr, /opt, and /var) incorrect. This is one reason I typically create only one partition as / that will be used for the entire system (minus swap space). In most cases, I will be installing addition disks for large applications like the Oracle RDBMS, Oracle Application Server, or other J2EE application servers. overlap : The overlap partition represents entire disk and is slice s2 of the disk.

swap : The swap partition size depends on the size of RAM in the system. If you are not sure of its size, make it double the amount of RAM in your system. I typically like to make swap 1GB.

Boot Device: c0t0d0s0

=================================================

Slice Mount Point Size (MB) 0 / 37136

1 swap 1025 2 overlap 38162

Hit ESC – F2 to continue

This is what the File System and Disk Layout screen looks like now. File system/Mount point Disk/Slice Size

Hit ESC – F2 to continue Screen 32 : Mount Remote File Systems?

Do you want to mount software from a remote file server? This may be necessary if you had to remove software because of disk space problems. Hit ESC – F2 to continue

Screen 33 : Confirm Information This is a confirmation screen. Verify all data is correct.

Hit ESC – F2 to continue Screen 34 : Reboot After Installation?

After Solaris software is installed, the system must be rebooted. You can choose to have the system automatically reboot, or you can choose to manually reboot the system if you want to run scripts or do other customizations before the reboot. You can manually reboot a system by using the reboot(1M) command. [X] Auto Reboot

[ ] Manual Reboot Hit ESC – F2 to Begin the Installation

Screen 34 : Installation Progress Afterwards it starts configuring disk making partitions and installing software indicating the progress.

The system then reboots or asks you to reboot depending upon the choice selected earlier in the Reboot After Installation? screen. Screen 36 : Create a root Password

On this screen you can create a root password. A root password can contain any number of characters, but only the first eight characters in the password are significant. (For example, if you create `a1b2c3d4e5f6′ as your root password, you can use `a1b2c3d4′ to gain root access.)

You will be prompted to type the root password twice; for security, the password will not be displayed on the screen as you type it. > If you do not want a root password, press RETURN twice.

Root password: Enter Your root Password and Press Return to continue.
