flar

A flar image contains the solaris system archive similar to tar balls. It can be used to make a system snapshot and install it on other machines.

Generation

If you have a system which is installed according to your needs and you want to clone it, create a flar archive with:

flarcreate -S -n "flashname" -x /excluded_directory /flar_image_name.flar

Installation using a flar archive

The flar archive can be used when installing a machine using a jumpstart server.
