Install the Solaris 11 Operating System

This section is intended for administrators installing AD Bridge Enterprise to Solaris targets.

What's New with the Solaris 11 Installer

There are two ways to install Solaris 11:

  • Traditional shell script using the legacy SVR4 packaging mechanism.
  • IPS repository install using Oracle's preferred IPS packaging mechanism

There is a p5p file that can be uploaded to your local IPS repository. This is located on the ISO in the following directory: agents/solaris11-<ARCH>/p5p

Upload the Packages with the P5P file

You can use the -ips option in the install script to upload the AD Bridge p5p archive file to the local repository.

Example:

pbis/install.sh --ips <repository>

If you only have the p5p file you can use the pkgrecv command.

Example

pkgrecv –s ./PBISEnterprise-X.X.X.XXXX-solaris11-<ARCH>.p5p –d <repository> PBISEnterprise.<ARCH>

Confirm the Package Added to Repository

Verify that the AD Bridge Enterprise package with publisher BeyondTrust has been added to the repository:

>pkgrepo list –s <repository>

Install the Agent in Solaris 11 Zones

After the files are uploaded to the local IPS repository and the global zone can access the IPS repository, then non-global zones can also access the repository.

In the zone, run the following IPS package command:

pkg install PBISEnterprise.<ARCH>
