Known Limitations/Issues:

Issue 1:
Ref: Sun Bug Id- 6441901, 6460493
On the Solaris 10 U6/U7 machine, manual steps are required to umount and delete the
lofi device which were created while performing the following opeartions:
  a- Create Solaris 10 U6 ActiveOS tar file.
  b- Install Solaris 10 U6/U7 ActiveOS from mount point.

Issue2:
Linux VPM Server can not support Solaris 10 U6 targets due to Sun's limitations
of Solaris 10 U6/U7 jumpstart using Linux server.

Issue3:
List of packages for ActiveOS will not show installed Packages for Solaris 10 U6, U7 (SPARC)

Important Notes:
1. VxVM Packages can be added only on Solaris 10 U6/U7 machine and not on VPM Server (As VPM Server is not certified on Solaris 10 U6/U7 and above)
2. While adding VxVM Packages to ActiveOS the exported directory from where aos_setup is being exceuted should be read write mounted.
