Oracle Solaris Summit - Solaris 11

The live stream and slides for the Oracle Solaris Summit have been posted here.

The slides cover a range of topics on Solaris 11. Of interest are the Image Packaging System and Deploying Oracle Solaris 11 in the Enterprise presentations.

The lack of custom scripting hooks in both IPS and the new installer, AI, should be of a concern to anyone who has large customized Jumpstart environments. Don't hold your breath waiting for these features to come either. You'd be better off putting time and effort porting your build environment to something like Puppet or Chef and just using Jumpstart/AI to put the basic bits onto disk.
