Overview

This article documents installing the 6/06 (June 2006) release of Solaris 10 from CD-ROM. For the purpose of this example, I will be installing Solaris 10 on a Sun Blade 150 with the following configuration:

Installing Solaris 10 will require 5 CDs found in the Solaris media kit labeled "Solaris 10 Software" or downloaded from http://www.sun.com/software/solaris/ - (Solaris 10 6/06). Before starting the installation process, ensure that you have noted the following items:

Using Serial / Console Connection

For a complete discussion of connecting to a Sun serial console from Linux, see my article "Using Serial Consoles - (Sun Sparcs)".

For this particular installation, I will NOT be using a VGA monitor connected to the built-in frame-buffer (video card). The installation will be done using the serial port of the Sun Blade as a console. A serial cable (null modem) will be connected from the serial port of a Linux machine to the serial port of the Sun Blade. Keep in mind that you will not be able to make use of the serial console of the Sun Blade if it was booted with the keyboard/mouse plugged in. In order to make use of the serial console, you will need to disconnect the keyboard/mouse and reboot the Sun server. On the Sun Blade 100/150, if the keyboard/mouse are plugged in during the boot phase, all console output will be redirected to the VGA console.

From the Linux machine, you can use a program called minicom. Start it up with the command "minicom". Press "Ctrl-A Z" to get to the main menu. Press "o" to configure minicom. Go to "Serial port setup" and make sure that you are set to the correct "Serial Device" and that the speed on line E matches the speed of the serial console you are connecting to. (In most cases with Sun, this is 9600.) Here are the settings I made when using Serial A / COM1 port on the Linux machine:

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
| A -    Serial Device      : /dev/ttyS0                                |
| B - Lockfile Location     : /var/lock                                 |
| C -   Callin Program      :                                           |
| D -  Callout Program      :                                           |
| E -    Bps/Par/Bits       : 9600 8N1                                  |
| F - Hardware Flow Control : Yes                                       |
| G - Software Flow Control : No                                        |
|                                                                       |
|    Change which setting?                                              |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------+
After making all necessary changes, hit the ESC key to go back to the "configurations" menu. Now go to "Modem and dialing". Change the "Init string" to "~^M~". Save the settings (as dflt), and then restart Minicom. You should now see a console login prompt.

Starting the Installation

The installation process starts at the ok prompt. The previous section of this document provides the steps required to not only gain access to the console port of the Sun SPARC server, but also how to get the server to an ok prompt. If when logging on, the machine is already booted into the O/S, (you have a console login like the following: "alex console login:"), you will need to bring the machine to its EEPROM (ok prompt) by initiating init 0 like in the Using Serial / Console Connection section above.

The first step in installing Solaris 10 is to boot the machine from Disk 1 of the Solaris 10 Software CDs. You will need to get the machine to the ok prompt. You can do this by shutting the system down using init 0. Once at the ok prompt, type in boot cdrom. (Or in some cases, you can use reboot cdrom). From here, the installation program prompts you for system configuration information that is needed to complete the installation.

  If you were performing a network installation, you would type:
ok boot net

In almost all cases, you will be installing the Solaris 10 software on a new system where it will not be necessary to preserve any data already on the hard drive. Using this assumption, I will partition the first single 40 GB IDE hard drive (/dev/dsk/c0t0d0) as the system disk.

Answering the Screen Prompts

Let's start the installation process! Put the Solaris 10 Software (Disk 1 of 5) in the CDROM tray and boot to it:

The boot process may take several minutes to complete, but once done, you will start answering a series of prompts.

The following section will walk you through many of the screen prompts from the installation.

The first two prompts are from the command line interface (CLI) and are used to specify the language and terminal. Use English for the Language. As for a terminal setting, I commonly telnet to a Linux server (that is connected from the serial port of the Linux server to the serial port of the Sun machine). From the Linux server, I use "minicom" to connect from the Linux server to the Sun server. The best terminal for this type of installation is "DEC VT100":

  Language                             : English
  What type of terminal are you using? : 3) DEC VT100

  You should be able to use a terminal type of "DEC VT100" or "X Terminal Emulator (xterms)".

  Depending on the terminal being used for installation while using the command line interface, it may be required to precede any of the function key responses (i.e. F2_Continue) with the ESC key (i.e. ESC - F2_Continue). For the purpose of this installation, I am using minicom 2.0 and configured the installation to use a DEC VT100 terminal. Given this configuration I did not have to precede any of the function key responses with the ESC key.

Many of the screens to follow will ask you about networking information. When asked if the system will be connected to a network, answer Yes.

  Many of the screens should be easy to complete except for the "Names Services" section. In almost all cases, you will want to use DNS naming services, but if your machine is not currently configured within DNS, this section will fail and no information entered about Names Services will be stored and configured.

If this is the case, you will need to select None under the Names Services section. The network configuration will then need to be completed after the installation process by updating certain network files on the local hard drive. This will be documented in the "Post Installation Procedures" of this document.

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

        Do you need to override the system's default NFS version 4 domain
        name (yes/no) ? [no] : no

        For more information about how the NFS version 4 default domain
        name is derived and its impact, refer to the man pages for nfs(4)
        and nfsmapid(1m), and the System Administration Guide: Network
        Services.
