Solaris 11 Installation and Deployment Tools

Two videos from Dave Miner at Oracle OpenWorld, 2010. The first is an in-depth look at how (and why) Oracle Solaris 11 has a much more comprehensive set of installation and update tools, including the Image Packaging System (IPS) and the Automated Installer (AI). This is from the Oracle OpenWorld/JavaOne/Oracle Develop Unconference, September 2010.

While he was there, Dave also gave Rick Ramsey an overview of the new install technologies and how to prepare for the new (and better) world.

The Alligator meets the Terminator: Caiman, AI, and the other 998 ways of installing OpenSolaris The presentation will give an overview over the state of the art in the world of OpenSolaris installation. Developers who might be familiar with the traditional interactive and JumpStart installation methods can find out about the shiny new installation techniques. Starting with the initial graphical interactive "Caiman" installer, OpenSolaris can now be installed in a more or less "hands-off" fashion, too. However, both this "Automated Installer" and the interactive text-based console installer are very much work in progress. The AI eats XML manifests, which seems a bit daunting and complicated but it's not so bad if the developer sticks to a few simple rules and has a good template. Package repositories provided via the Image Packaging System are the basis of every OpenSolaris installation. Operations on packaged objects are initiated through actuators, and software instances can be assembled leveraging the Service Management Framework. The interaction and workflow between these components is shown in a few short examples. The distribution builder is also briefly described. Finally, particularly for software and package developers, we will spend a few minutes on tips and tricks to speed up installation-test-edit cycles and installation debugging. There aren't really a thousand ways of installing OpenSolaris, but there is certainly more choice for the developer than just a few months ago. This presentation attempts to empower the developer to make informed choices for her or his OpenSolaris installation method.
