Step 21

─ NFSv4 Domain Name ────────────────────────────────────────────────── ──────────

NFS version 4 uses a domain name that is automatically derived from the
system's naming services. The derived domain name is sufficient for most
configurations. In a few cases, mounts that cross domain boundaries might
cause files to appear to be owned by "nobody" due to the lack of a common
domain name.

The current NFSv4 default domain is: "halcyoninc.com"

NFSv4 Domain Configuration

[X] Use the NFSv4 domain derived by the system
[ ] Specify a different NFSv4 domain

F2_Continue

it needs to identify your system; you will be prompted to supply any
information it cannot find.

> To begin identifying this system, press F2.

F2_Continue


Step 30:

─ Enabling remote service ───────────────────

Would you like to enable network services for use by remote clients?

Selecting "No" provides a more secure configuration in
which Secure Shell is the only network service provided to
remote clients. Selecting "Yes" enables a larger set of
services as in previous Solaris releases. If in doubt, it is
safe to select "No" as any services can be individually enabled
after installation.

Note: This choice only affects initial installs. It doesn't affect upgrades.

Remote services enabled

[X] Yes
[ ] No


F2_Continue

The Solaris 10 installation will take a few seconds to start...

Step 31

─ Solaris Interactive Installation ───────────────

On the following screens, you can accept the defaults or you can customize
how Solaris software will be installed by:

- Selecting the type of Solaris software to install
- Selecting disks to hold software you've selected
- Selecting unbundled products to be installed with Solaris
- Specifying how file systems are laid out on the disks

After completing these tasks, a summary of your selections (called a
profile) will be displayed.

There are two ways to install your Solaris software:

- "Standard" installs your system from a standard Solaris Distribution.
Selecting "Standard" allows you to choose between initial install
and upgrade, if your system is upgradable.
- "Flash" installs your system from one or more Flash Archives.

F2_Standard


Step 32

─ Eject a CD/DVD Automatically? ────────────────e

During the installation of Solaris software, you may be using one or more
CDs/DVDs. You can choose to have the system eject each CD/DVD automatically after it is installed or you can choose to manually eject each CD/DVD.

[X] Automatically eject CD/DVD
[ ] Manually eject CD/DVD

F2_Continue


Step 33

─ 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

F2_Continue


Step 34

─ Initializing ─────────────────

The system is being initialized.

Then the Sun Microsystems, Inc License Agreement appears. After reading through it, press F2 to Accept the License or F5 to Exit the installation.

i.e.

- Sun Microsystems, Inc. ("Sun")

North America
[ ] U.S.A. (UTF-8) ( en_US.UTF-8 )

F2_Continue


Step 37

─ Additional Product ───────────────────

To scan for additional products, select the location you wish to scan.
Products found at the selected location that are in a Web Start Ready
install form will be added to the Products list.

Web Start Ready product scan location:

[X] None
[ ] CD/DVD
[ ] Network File System


F2_Continue


Step 38

─ Choose Filesystem Type ───────────────────

Select the filesystem to use for your Solaris installation

[X] UFS
[ ] ZFS

ZFS is suppose to be much better, but since Sun choose UFS as the default, I will use it as well.

F2_Continue


Step 39

─ Select Software ───────────────────

Select the Solaris software to install on the system.

NOTE: After selecting a software group, you can add or remove software by
customizing it. However, this requires understanding of software
dependencies and how Solaris software is packaged.

[ ] Entire Distribution plus OEM support ....... 6510.00 MB
[X] Entire Distribution ........................ 6468.00 MB
[ ] Developer System Support ................... 6268.00 MB
[ ] End User System Support .................... 5255.00 MB

F2_Continue


Step 40

─ Select Disks ────────────────────────────────────────────────── ───────────────

On this screen you must select the disks for installing Solaris software.
Start by looking at the Suggested Minimum field; this value is the
approximate space needed to install the software you've selected. Keep
selecting disks until the Total Selected value exceeds the Suggested Minimum value.

NOTE: ** denotes current boot disk

Disk Device Available Space
================================================== ===========================
[X] c0d0 61437 MB (F4 to edit)

Step 41

─ 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.

F2_Continue


Step 42

─ 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.


To simplify this installation, I just choose the Auto layout. Personally I prefer to have my own settings, one big filesystem

F2_Continue


Step 43

─ Automatically Layout File Systems ────────────────────────────────────────────

On this screen you must select all the the file systems you want auto-layout to create, or accept the default file systems shown.

NOTE: For small disks, it may be necessary for auto-layout to break up some
of the file systems you request into smaller file systems to fit the
available disk space. So, after auto-layout completes, you may find file
systems in the layout that you did not select from the list below.

File Systems for Auto-layout
========================================
[X] /
[ ] /opt
[ ] /usr
[ ] /usr/openwin
[ ] /var
[X] swap

F2_Continue


Step 44

─ 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 sys/Mnt point Disk/Slice Size
================================================== ======================
/ c0d0s0 6557 MB
swap c0d0s1 512 MB
overlap c0d0s2 61437 MB
/export/home c0d0s7 54366 MB


Here I decided I would actually increase the size of swap and also got rid of /export/home and combined the space into the root (/) partition. Here are my new settings after hitting the F5 key to customize:

─ Customize Disk: c0d0 ───────────────────

Boot Device: c0d0s0

Entry: swap Recommended: 0 MB Minimum: 0 MB
================================================== ==============================
Slice Mount Point Size (MB)
0 / 59388
1 swap 2048
2 overlap 61437
3 0
4 0
5 0
6 0
7 0
================================================== ==============================
Capacity: 61437 MB
Allocated: 61436 MB
Rounding Error: 1 MB
Free: 0 MB

New settings summary:

File sys/Mnt point Disk/Slice Size
================================================== ======================
/ c0d0s0 59388 MB
swap c0d0s1 2048 MB
overlap c0d0s2 61437 MB


F2_Continue


Step 45

─ 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.

F2_Continue


Step 46

─ Profile ────────────────────────────────────────────────── ────────────────────

The information shown below is your profile for installing Solaris software.
It reflects the choices you've made on previous screens.

Installation Option: Initial
Boot Device: c0d0
Root File System Type: UFS
Client Services: None

Locales: U.S.A. (UTF-8)
System Locale: C ( C )

Software: Solaris 10, Entire Distribution

File System and Disk Layout: / c0d0s0 59388 MB
swap c0d0s1 2048 MB


F2_Begin_Installation


Step 47

─ Warning ────────────────────────────────────────────────── ────────────────────

The following disk configuration condition(s) have been
detected. Errors must be fixed to ensure a successful
installation. Warnings can be ignored without causing the
installation to fail.

WARNING: CHANGING DEFAULT BOOT DEVICE
You have either explicitly changed the default boot device, or
accepted the default to "Reconfigure EEPROM". In either case,
the system's EEPROM will be changed so it will always boot
Solaris from the device that you've specified. If this is not
what you had in mind, go back to the disk selection screens and
change the "Reconfigure EEPROM" setting.

Esc-2_OK to continue.


Preparing system for Solaris install

Configuring disk (c0d0)
