Advise on Install of Solaris

CyberNinja Newbie

I got some new servers in and I'm thinking to re-install the Solaris 10 OS on them. I have noticed that the OS has extra stuff on it that I don't need. Later when I have to harden the server they show up in the scans. I'm thinking of installing Solaris 10 as a headless server. What has your experience been with this? I think that if I do the install from a DVD I will select the "Core System Support Software Group" when I do the install. Is there anything I need to consider? This will be the 1st non GUI install of Solaris for me. I may also do this with Solaris 11 with Solaris 10 zones.

Thanks for your time
