You will need the following information before you can begin installation:
If you have any questions or need assistance, please call OIIT Customer Services at 1-888-875-3697.
Power up the system. Insert the Solaris 8 Software 1 of 2 CD. Once you see the inital banner of system information, the machine should begin checking memory. During the memory check, press stop-a (the stop key and the "a" key at the same time.) If you don't have a stop key, please contact OIIT support at the number above.
You should see a prompt that looks like this:
At that prompt, type:
If this fails, you may need to enter the entire hardware path to your cdrom. Please call OIIT support for help in discerning this path.
The machine will begin booting off the CD-ROM. This may take several minutes depending upon the speed of the hardware. Once the machine has booted, you will be presented with the following prompts.

|Step 30||Automatically Layout File Systems?||Choose Manual Layout and choose Continue.|
|Step 31||File System and Disk Layout||Choose Customize.|
|Step 32||Customize Disk: [disk ID]||These recommendations are based on a two (2) gigabyte system drive. If your drive is larger, you will need to adjust these sizes to your needs. 2GB is the absolute minimum for installing Solaris 8. |
We recommend 1.5 times the machine's physical RAM with a minimum of 350M for swap space.
Historically, a physical, disk-based /tmp filesystem was created. We recommend against creating a disk-based /tmp filesystem. Solaris is configured to use tempfs which is a special filesystem that uses Virtual Memory (physical RAM + Swap) rather than using a disk. The result is less I/O and a faster system. The risk in using tempfs is that, if improperly configured, any user can write files to /tmp and fill up Virtual Memory. The OIIT Solaris Suppliment that you install following this installation will ask you the size limit for /tmp so that this problem can be avoided.
If your system has very little physical RAM (<32M) you may wish to create a swap partition during this step.
We recommend that /opt , /home and /www live on a disk other than the system disk if the machine is going to be used as a web/mail server and has a 2GB system disk. If you need help migrating these filesystems to an alternate disk, please contact TSS via the helpdesk at 1-888-875-3697.
If your system will be used as a mail server and you wish to deliver mail to /var/spool/mail please size /var accordingly, or create a partition for /var/spool/. If you wish to deliver mail to user's home directories, size that/those partition(s) accordingly.
If you feel your system is heavily taxed in terms of I/O (campus-wide e-mail server, campus-wide web server, banner server, etc.) we recommend that you split up the "system" partitions across disks.
If your disk is larger than 2GB, please note that some filesystems do not need to increase in size. Such filesystems are / and /usr/local.
Solaris uses slice 2 as a special slice/partition that represents the whole disk. We strongly recommend that you not place filesystems on slice 2 and that you leave the configuration for slice 2 at the default values.
|Step 33||File System and Disk Layout||Read and choose Continue.|
|Step 34||Mount Remote File Systems?||Choose Continue.|
|Step 35||Profile||Read and choose Continue.|
|Step 35a||OPTIONAL: Warning||If you've left any unused space on your disk, you might see a warning message. Read and choose Continue.|
|Step 36||Reboot After Installation?||Select your desired method and Begin Installation.|
|Step 37||Once the machine reboots, enter your root password when prompted.|
|Step 38||Media||Choose CD and choose Continue.|
|Step 39||The CD-ROM will eject the current media and you'll be prompted for Solaris Software Disk 2 of 2. Place Software Disk 2 in the drive and press enter/return.|
|Step 40||Installation details:||Choose 2 (default) and choose Continue.|
The cd will eject when the software installation is complete. Press enter/return to reboot the system.
Once the machine reboots, you will be prompted to set your root password. After setting the root password, you may be asked about using power management features. OIIT does not recommend the use of Solaris' power management features.
