Now we're actually going to take a look at using the Interactive Installer. For this part of the course we're going to do a demonstration on an installation from the Oracle Solaris 11 Live CD. This was the same one that we looked at earlier when I showed you the quick tour of Solaris 11. So let's go ahead and take a look at how to install from the Live CD. Alright. We're here in Solaris 11 in the Oracle Virtual Box version of it. And what we're going to do is go ahead and install Oracle from this Live CD. So the first thing we want to do is go ahead and double click on the icon here and one thing you should know some of the things that we'll talk about take a little bit of time. So I may occasionally stop the recording process when I know that a step is going to take several minutes and we won't skip any parts but it'll be a little bit time condensed for you so we don't bore you to death by watching a blank screen or watching the system do not much of anything for a little while. So the first thing we see is the Installer screen and this is very easy to do. We see a welcome message and it's going to tell us to look at the Release Notes. We're going to click Next. Now it tells us what kind of drive we have and I have a virtual drive installed on the machine and it's a 16 gig drive and that's the kind of the minimum that Solaris 11 asks for when it creates a virtual machine. I'm going to go ahead and do a simple install, we're just going to use the entire disk. It tells us that the recommended size is 7 gig and the minimum is 5 gig and that's important to know for your hardware requirements. During a later presentation we'll look at partitioning the disk and you can do it during the installation or you can do it later on if you leave unpartitioned space available for you. Now you can look and see what kind of partition types we can use, unused, extended and so forth. But we're going to go ahead and use the whole disk at this point. Let's click Next, at any time you can quit the Installer by pressing the Quit Button or Get Help, obviously. So here we will set the time and I'm just going to pick a region arbitrarily. I'm going to pick New York, I'll pick Eastern Time and we'll leave the clock where it's at. I'm going to click Next and here's where we give it username information and login name information. So I'm just going to put my own information in here and I'm going to call it Bobby and then it gives you the opportunity to put your password in and you always want to use a complex password by the way in any system you use or administer. And we can change the computer name if we want. I'm going to change it to VTC for the time being and we're going to click Next. And now we have some settings that we can review and the settings that we can review are the disk size and partition, the software we're going to install obviously, the time zone, the default language, language support and the user confirmation. Now one thing you'll notice here is that it creates the user account as I specified and it automatically sets the root password to the same as the user account and this is not necessarily a good thing for an initial install. So as you soon as you get this installed you want to change this. It sets the host name as VTC. Now the Solaris Live CD it's actual username and password that it uses for the username, it's Jack and the password is Jack. For the root account for the Live CD it's Root and Solaris all lowercase. Now as soon as you change this, that changes the root password obviously for an install on the hard drive. So let's go ahead and click Install and this is where it could get a little boring. This is where you can actually go get a cup of coffee and so forth and, and do some other things. So what we may do is go ahead and pause this and actually bring it, bring you back to it when we, it starts doing some things that are of interest. So this can take some time to install the software to let it go ahead and copy files and so forth. So it's going to do a few things here and nothing of real consequence that you interact with. You've pretty much done most of the interaction you're going to do. This is a very simple install process, it's very easy to use. It doesn't require a lot, you actually do a lot of your configuration after the system is installed. Now we've come to the conclusion of the Solaris 11 Installer process. Now we did time lapse through some of the boring stuff where the system was copying files and so forth. But there was nothing where the user really needed to interact with the system. When you install it on your own for the first time you'll kind of see that it's pretty much a good place to go get a cup of coffee or do something. The total installation can sometimes last up to an hour. Now that we've come to the last screen here for the Interactive Installer it tells us that the installation is complete and we can look at the Installation Log for more information. Let's just click that really quick and kind of look at what it contains. Some of this may not make sense right now but there's a lot of information on doing things like performing disk maintenance, doing partitioning and so forth, installing device drivers, setting up configuration parameters and so forth. So if you have any issues during this installation you can always look here in the Install Log. Let's go ahead and close this and right now the next step really is to reboot the system and when we reboot we should come into a fully installed Solaris 11 system, still in Virtual Box but installed on the virtual hard drive. So at this point we'll go ahead and do that and then in the later session we'll do a Text Install.
