JET in Sun xVM Ops Center

Jumpstart Enterprise Toolkit (JET) simplifies the use of Jumpstart to install and configure Solaris OS. Solaris OS installation in Sun xVM Ops Center uses JET as the underlying technology.

Sun xVM Ops Center contains the SUNWjet package, which contains the main JET framework. This package has 3 modules: base_config, custom, and flash.

For Solaris systems, you can create a Solaris OS profile in one of two ways:

  • Create an OS profile exclusively from a JET template.

    A sample JET template is available at /opt/SUNWjet/Templates. You can either edit that template or create a new template.

    To create the OS profile, first select Operating System from the Provisioning menu, then select Import Jet Template from the OS Profiles menu. Follow the steps in the wizard to import the JET template and create a OS profile from that JET template.

  • Create an OS profile that includes additional JET module and name/value parameter functionality.

    To create the OS profile, first select Operating System from the Provisioning menu, then select Create OS Profile from the OS Profiles menu. Select Specify JET parameters in the Define Profile screen and specify additional JET parameters.

    There are additional JET packages such as JetZONES and JetLDOMS available from Sun. These packages are not available in Sun xVM Ops Center as of now. You can download and use these packages to provision zones and LDoms through Sun xVM Ops Center.
