I have jumpstart server for instaling Solaris 8, 9 and 10 and I need to boot solaris 10 with ZFS. Please help me to create zfs jumpstart profile for booting with ZFS.
Great question and one which I'm coming across a lot - the good news is that this is indeed possible and in fact very easily achieved.
You can create a JumpStart profile to install a ZFS root file system or a UFS root file system. If the profile is set up to install a UFS root file system, all existing profile keywords work as in previous Solaris releases.
A ZFS specific profile must contain the new pool keyword. The pool keyword installs a new root pool and a new boot environment is created by default. You can provide the name of the boot environment and can create a separate /var dataset with the bootenv installbe keywords and bename and dataset options.
To read more about the steps involved visit Sun's online documentation for Solaris ZFS Administration.
Thanks for Pradeep for asking this great question - keep them coming!
