JET 4.1 now available
By mramcha on Jan 05, 2006
We've finally made the latest version of JET (the same version currently available in the N1 SPS product) available for download on the Sun download site (linked at the Bigadmin page below.). There is one major difference between JET 4.1 and the older version (JET 3.7.3), and that it that it now installs in /opt/SUNWjet instead of /opt/jet. The reason for this change is simply that now that it is a more "official" product, it should be installed in a more "official" sounding place.
If you are installing/using JET for the first time, then simply install the package as normal, following the instructions at Bigadmin . You should also take the time to read the PDF file supplied in the SUNWjetd package.
Things might be a little trickier if you've already got JET 3.7.3 installed, and you want to keep you existing templates etc. The easiest way to accomplish this is to pkgrm all your existing JET packages. (SUNWjet, and all the packages that start with JET), and then mv /opt/jet /opt/SUNWjet. Finally install the new JET packages.
If you've created you own custom modules or scripts, you may need to check them to ensure you haven't hard-coded any /opt/jet paths in them.
Other than the path change, JET 4.1 is mainly a bug fix release of 3.7.3, although the bundle contains a JET module called JetNEWBOOT which allows you to install Sol 10 Update 1 and Solaris Express on x86/64 using Grub.
As always, you can get help on how to use JET via the alias jet-AT-sun.com , and you can get even more help from the JETJumpstart group at Yahoo.
