现在只需要注册一个OTN账号就可以从下载到Solaris 11的安装介质了。


Solaris 分成 For Sparc 和 For x86 2个版本。



除了Text install 的介质外(for x86 or SPARC systems without graphic display, mostly server installs) , 还有:

  • Automated Installation(hands free network install for multiple client systems that have custom installation manifests.)
  • Live Media CD (for x86 systems with graphic display, mostly workstation installs)
  • Repository Image( 完全的软件包镜像)
  • USB Install Images for x86
  • Oracle Solaris 11 Preflight Application Checker



Solaris 11的特性

Solaris 11 正式版在 11 Express的基础上增强了以下特性:

  • Automated Installer (AI)
  • System Configuration (SC)
  • Image Packaging System (IPS)
  • Zones
  • Networking Enhancements
  • Network Virtualization and Resource Control


Automated Installer (AI)
The Automated Installer is used to automate the install of Solaris on one or more SPARC or x86 machines over a network. The installations can differ in architecture, packages installed, disk capacity, and other parameters. AI, in its WAN-capable design provides operational flexibility and leverages some of Solaris’ best features such as ZFS, SMF, IPS and Zones versus the old Jumpstart install method. It is designed to be manageable and observable and fully customizable using AI manifests and SC profiles.

System Configuration (SC)
The new System Configuration configures a Solaris instance. It replaces the legacy sysid tools. This table maps the old sysid tool to the new SC method of configuring the system. We will discuss all of these new items in this course including SC profiles, the SCI tool, the SMF services for configuration and the sysconfig command.

Image Packaging System (IPS)
New Features – Linked Images
Non-global zones (NGZs) need to be updated and kept in sync with the global zone (GZ)
Configuration – NGZs need to know which publishers must be configured
Communication – NGZs need access to the GZ’s publishers
Constraints – The GZ imposes constraints on which packages and package versions the NGZ can use

Networking Enhancements
What Is It?

  • Network Configuration Profiles
  • Network Configuration CLI
  • Network Layers Administration
  • New PMP re-architecture
  • New IP tunneling implementation
  • Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP)
  • Layer-2 Bridging
  • IP Host Model Configuration
