Vol 126 Issue 4 2008-08-31 Article 20482 from section "SysAdmin's Section"

Part of the "Less Known Solaris Features" Series

Joerg Moellenkamp writes, "How can you prevent the subtle variances
between your systems? The most obvious way is the automation of the
installation. Let do the computer, what a computer can do at best:
Repetitive tasks with the same quality over and over again. Jumpstart
and Jet have several ways and means to do an automatic installation,
thus making the live of the admin much easier after you've done the
initial setup. And in this tutorial I want to show you that this
setup is really easy."

As part of his on going series, "Less Known Solaris Features", Joerg
explains how to do that with Jumpstart Enterprise Toolkit (JET).
