I need to install a new Solaris image on our server as it used to be under a support agreement but is not anymore, and as such I'm unable to download any new packages from the (https://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/support/) repository and need to download them from the (http://pkg.oracle.com/solaris/release/) repository. However I'm getting a lot of errors and unable to install any new packages from the release repository (as I believe my "entire" image can only handle Support repo packages). Please find below the output from "pkg info entire".

I'm quite new to the Solaris environment and have searched for hours online about how to change the system image/"entire" package, however can't find anything useful. I just need to install any version of Solaris 11. Do I need to (somehow) physically access the server and re-image using a USB, or is there an easier way to just tell the system to revert to the opensource "release" version of Solaris?
