Jumpstart profile for ZFS flash installation

Hi Everyone, 

Could anyone please send me an sample jumpstart profile for flash 
installation(Using Bootable DVD) 
of ZFS filesystem. 

I am facing an issue because of partitioning explicit(existing) keyword. 

explicit option ---->Error : At least one 30 MB solaris fdisk partition is 
required 

existing option---->Error : No (/) file system in selected device 

When i removed partitioning keyword from profile ---> Error : Either 
explicit or existing should be used with partitioning 

Its Urgent so please help me as soon as possible with better solution 
Hi, 
Send the contents of the profile file. 


Thanks for your valuable response. 

My Profile :::: 

install_type flash_install 
archive_location local_file /cdrom/Solaris_10/Product/zfs1009BE.flar 
partitioning explicit 
pool rpool auto 4G 4G rootdisk.s0 
bootenv installbe bename zfs1009BE 


install_type flash_install 
archive_location local_file /cdrom/Solaris_10/Product/zfs1009BE.flar 
partitioning explicit 
pool rpool auto 4G 4G rootdisk.s0 
bootenv installbe bename zfs1009BE 


"partitioning explicit" needs the layout you need i.e. : 

filesys c0t0d0s0 auto / 
filesys c0t3d0s1 auto swap 

"pool rpool auto 4G 4G rootdisk.s0" 

if you use this line you need to do the above (partitioning explicit with the filesys lines 

If you removed the "partitioning explicit" line you need to also remove the "pool rpool.." line. 
I resolved the issue by adding "fdisk all solaris all" before "partitioning explicit". 

Thanks for ur valuable response that gave me a clue to resolve this issue.
