I've seen some questions about provisioning Oracle Solaris 11. They boil down to this:
"Is it possible to provision both Oracle Solaris 11 and 11.1 onto managed systems from one Ops Center installation?"
Yes, this is possible. There are two ways to do it.
The first way is to have your MSR use Oracle Solaris 11.1, and then have two Proxy Controllers, the first with Oracle Solaris 11 and the second with Oracle Solaris 11.1. The first Proxy Controller will provision Oracle Solaris 11, while the second will provision the latest Oracle Solaris 11.1. This section in the release notes discusses this in more detail.
The other method is to keep your MSR and your Proxy Controllers using Oracle Solaris 11. Then, once the OS is provisioned, use IPS to update the OS to Oracle Solaris 11.1. This requires that each system be updated individually, but it does let you choose which SRU you want.
