Now that we've discussed the Interactive Installer in detail and we've also looked at a Live CD installation, now we're going to do a demonstration of an installation using the Text Installer CD itself. Now normally you would use this method of installation when you're installing a Solaris server or when you have a low end graphics card or maybe not enough system memory for the Live CD Installer to run. Now one thing I'll mention is that we are going to abbreviate this installation a little bit simply because sometimes it can take a great deal of time. So I'm going to skip the boot sequence and kind of start you out where the Installer portion starts. Trust me we'll have plenty of time to review the Solaris 11 Boot Sequence a little bit later on in the course. For right now we'll pick up where the installation starts. So let's go ahead and take a look at it. Alright. We're on the installation screen, again this is using the Text Installer and it's already booted, we've already selected a keyboard and a language and then we got to this screen. So from this screen we can do different things. Obviously we want to install Oracle Solaris but we can also choose to install additional drivers, we can go to a Shell, we can go to the Terminal. We can set it to the Terminal Type and we can reboot the system if we would like. Let's take a simple install and go ahead and see what we get. So we're going to enter one and again this can take a little bit of time, it really depends on several things. It depends upon the speed of your processor how much memory you have, the hardware in your computer and so forth. Okay. We get our initial screen here and it's going to tell us where the Install Log is and again it reminds us that it can install on Spark or X86 platforms. And one thing about this Installer is F2 typically continues, the Enter key doesn't do too much. So watch for the bottom of the screen it'll tell you what your options are. So we're going to go ahead and hit F2 for Continue. It's going to look at the disk on the system itself. Okay. And it's going to tell us what the recommended minimum sizes are. Now it's telling us that we have a 16 gig Sata drive there and it's going to suggest a partition table for us. Now we can go ahead and accept that obviously or we can go ahead and later on decide to change that. So I'm going to go ahead and accept what is offered there using F2. And again it suggests to us to use either the whole disk or to partition the disk. Let's go ahead and go with the whole disk for right now. Again F2 now F3 will get us back, F6 will get us help and F9 will stop the process. Now one thing you need to know is that you have to be focused on a particular option in order for the F2 to continue and to accept that option. So we're going to go ahead and type in a name for the box. And again as I said you have to have something selected in order to continue. So we're going to go ahead and select the automatically configure the connection option. Now we could go ahead and enter that manually and I'll show you how to do that a little bit later when we talk about configuring the network. Let's go ahead and hit Continue and this is where we get our time zone information from. It kind of breaks it down by regions first so we'll go to the Americas as I'm recording from North America. And then you get to select the country from the region and unfortunately it's not very intuitive, typing the word U won't get you down to the United States or that area. So we have to kind of scroll down a little bit and I'm going to hit F2 again. And then I'm going to just select the time zone I'm going to go with the Eastern Time Zone. I'm going to hit F2 and you can select your time zone when you're installing. And we can pick the time where we want to install, it obviously uses the 24 hour format and it tries to go by the system clock date that you have and we're going to leave that time and date there. Now unlike the Live CD you actually get to select a root password here whereas on the Live CD whatever user account you create, the root account gets that password also. So let's go ahead and give it a good root password and you have to confirm it obviously. And then we're going to create an account. And then F2, don't hit Enter and it summarizes installation for you, all the options you chose to take and really this is a lot like the GUI version, it just looks a little bit differently. So we have the F2 Install Option here which I'm going to go ahead and take and this is probably where I'm going to time lapse a little bit because it can do this for a little while. It will prepare for the installation and then we'll transfer files over and that can take some time depending upon how fast your CD ROM is, how the hardware on the machine is configured and so forth. So we're going to time lapse a little bit and when we come back you'll see that this is completed. Alright. And we've completed the installation and of course we need to reboot in order to make this boot in our new installation. And if we want to review the Installation Log it's located at the location shown on the screen, System Volatile Install Log. And after reboot you can look at it at varsadm system logs install log. And you'll want to look at that to troubleshoot anything or just to make sure that the installation went well. So let's go ahead and reboot and that concludes our discussion on using the Interactive Text Installer CD.
