Oracle Solaris 11.1 can be installed in a number of different ways - from a hands free server based automated installation to a text or graphical installation (Live Media). Installation is easy and fast, and can be customized with additional software using the Oracle Solaris 11 network based package management system.
All installation downloads are in ISO image format which can be burned to a CD/DVD, or used directly within Oracle VM Server or other virtualization software. Once you have downloaded an ISO image, you can verify it by checking against the relevant MD5 checksum. The Automated Installation download ISO can be used directly by the Automated Install service. Please refer to Product Documentation for further details.
The Automated Installer provides a "hands-free" network installation for multiple client systems, allowing administrators the ability to create and manage customized installation profiles for different systems. Client systems must have network access to a local IPS repository or have direct internet access.
The Live Media provides administrators with an opportunity to explore the Oracle Solaris 11.1 environment without installing it on a system. The system boots off the media directly allowing administrators to start the installer should they choose to install it to a system.
This Repository image provides the set of packages required for the first step in making an update directly from Oracle Solaris 11 11/11 to Oracle Solaris 11.1. It is to be used as part of a local repository to update systems which do not have direct internet access.
The repository image is provided in two parts that must be concatenated together. Please use the following command-line instructions to successfully create a full ISO image that can be burned to a dual-layer DVD or directly mounted using lofiadm.
This Repository image provides an archive of updated software packages that are required to be installed prior to updating an unmaintained Oracle Solaris 11 11/11 system to Oracle Solaris 11.1. This image is only required for systems that don't have direct internet access to the Oracle packages repositories.
Note: The ISO image contains a README that describes the necessary two-step process to update to Oracle Solaris 11.1
USB Install Images for x86
USB images require the utility 'usbcopy' to copy the bootable ISO image to a USB flash drive. The required version of this utility is available on Oracle Solaris 11 by installing pkg:/install/distribution-constructor using the pkg(1) command-line or Package Manager utility.
The Oracle Solaris Preflight Application Checker is a tool which enables you to determine the Oracle Solaris 11 readiness of an application by analyzing a working application on Oracle Solaris 10. A successful check with this tool will be a strong indicator that an ISV may run a given application without modifications on Oracle Solaris 11.
