The Solaris installation process consists of three phases: system configuration, system installation, and post-installation tasks such as setting up printers, users, and networking. This chapter describes the various system configurations and the installation of the Solaris operating system on a standalone system.
Once the software is installed, the system administrator is responsible for managing all software installed on a system. Installing and removing software is a routine task that is performed frequently. This chapter explains how to add and remove additional applications after the operating system has already been installed.
