Minimal OpenSolaris SPARC install

Using previous instructions I've successfully installed opensolaris 2009.06 on my TestFarm (thanks, Jim) T2000 from existing Nevada b98.
Steps are identical: my machine have 4 disks, so I've prepared third disk (c0t2d0) for installation (I take 4gb):

Part Tag Flag Cylinders Size Blocks
0 root wm 0 - 824 4.00GB (825/0/0) 8395200
1 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0
2 backup wu 0 - 14086 68.35GB (14087/0/0) 143349312
3 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0
4 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0
5 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0
6 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0
7 unassigned wm 0 0 (0/0/0) 0

Next steps (it's fast):

zpool create opensolaris c0t2d0s0
zfs create opensolaris/rootfs
zfs set compression=on opensolaris/rootfs
zfs set mountpoint=legacy opensolaris/rootfs
mkdir /zfsroot
mount -f zfs opensolaris/rootfs /zfsroot

Here's minimal list of packages for my T2000 (sun4v):

I already have pkg built and installed from sources on my Nevada. Now network installation:

pkg image-create -F -f -a opensolaris.org=http://pkg.opensolaris.org /zfsroot

cd /zfsroot

for pkg in `cat pkg.lst`; do pkg install --no-refresh --no-index $pkg; done

echo "etc/zfs/zpool.cache" >> /zfsroot/boot/solaris/filelist.ramdisk

zpool set bootfs=opensolaris/rootfs opensolaris

echo "opensolaris/rootfs - / zfs - no -" >> /zfsroot/etc/vfstab

mkdir -p /opensolaris/platform/sun4v

cp /zfsroot/platform/sun4v/bootlst /opensolaris/platform/sun4v/

cp /zfsroot/lib/svc/seed/global.db /zfsroot/etc/svc/repository.db

devfsadm -R /zfsroot

bootadm update-archive -R /zfsroot

installboot -F zfs /platform/sun4v/lib/fs/zfs/bootblk /dev/rdsk/c0t2d0s0

This install take only 630 mb. Now I can adjust my network settings and install additional packages.

Nice.

little typo:
zfs set mountpoint=legasy opensolaris/rootfs

s/legasy/legacy/

IMHO :)

You're missing one package:

entire


Without the correct version of that package installed, the pkg(5) system won't be able to correctly upgrade or install new packages on that system.

Be sure you add it, and don't worry, that won't install any additional packages! It will just properly constrain all of your installed packages to a single build.

Thanks, Shawn!
You are always right :)

This method has one unpleasant feature - BE is null after reboot to OpenSolaris and you can´t upgrade the system or create another BE. This can be avoided by creating new BE with lucreate. Then you just need to remove the SXCE contents in new BE and install OS packages.
