    Why do you want to? If you want to do something post install, then do it in the finish script. You can prevent the reboot
    after install in the interactive installation, but I don't know if there is a way in the automated.

    Try to put the obp  param   diag-switch?=true
    It usually prevents my 25K domains for booting after a jet installation.

    But as blu says, I don't know why would you want to avoid this reboot....

    Setting diag-switch to true drops the system into the OBP instead of booting, so the next step is for it to boot,
    which pretty much means that the system rebooted, it just took longer. I suspect that what the original poster wants
    is not to prevent the boot up, but to rather prevent the shutdown, presumably to do some post install configuration/logging. Again, your best bet is to do it in the finish script.

    Sorry, but I don't agree with you. The 25K domains doesn't go to the obp, but remains on the # prompt created by the jet.
