Understanding SmartOS Builds

There is a new build, on average, every 2 weeks. SmartOS builds do not have a version number, rather they have a timestamp in the form: 20120809T221258Z (in this example, the date is: 08/09/2012 at 22:12:58 UTC)

For any given build, there will be 5 files available:

  • platform-(timestamp).tgz: The raw kernel and boot_archive; this is most commonly used for PXE booting
  • smartos-(timestamp).iso: Live Image ISO
  • smartos-(timestamp)-usb.img.bz2: Live Image USB image (This is the preferred installation method)
  • smartos-(timestamp).vmwarevm.tar.bz2: VMware Image (VMX Format) - Please Note!  Make sure nested virtualization is enabled if you want to use KVM or BHYVE..
  • SINGLE_USER_ROOT_PASSWORD.(timestamp).txt: Contains the default root password for the live image (needed only when booting without mounting the zpool)

For a full list of changes in each build, please refer to the SmartOS Change Log.
