Solaris Bootdisk Layout discussion
By mramcha on Sep 25, 2007
There's been a vibrant discussion on the sysadmin-discuss(at)opensolaris.org alias about boot disk layouts, and it was suggested that we try to come to some form of consensus and document it.
Sun has a bunch of installation standards called EIS (Enterprise Installation Standards), and one of those standards is the EIS Bootdisk Standard. As one of the contributors to that document, I found it quite interesting to see that the sysadmin discussion was coming to similar conclusions about how a boot disk should be laid out as we had come to internally.
In the interests of sharing and getting to a common standard, I've now posted the relevant bits of the EIS standard on the BigAdmin wiki, and encouraged the members of the sysadmin-discuss alias to comment and contribute.
If you're interested, you should have a look at it, and join the alias to participate in the discussion.
