For ZFS you'll need:

SUNWzfskr (that's the kernel part)
SUNWzfsr (root part)

cluster SUNWCssh add # replaces all the above

You need that if you are doing a sunray or jumpstart

Also, if you need the trusted extensions to X, you'll need:


If you used CDE, that's another 4 more packages for TSE / CDE (10 more
if using gnome...)
