Solaris 10 8/07 Installation Guide: Solaris Live Upgrade and Upgrade Planning

How to Manage Volumes With Solaris Live Upgrade

When creating a boot environment, you can use Solaris Live Upgrade to manage the following tasks.

You use the lucreate command with the -m option to create a mirror, detach submirrors, and attach submirrors for the new boot environment.


Note –

If VxVM volumes are configured on your current system, the lucreate command can create a new boot environment. When the data is copied to the new boot environment, the Veritas file system configuration is lost and a UFS file system is created on the new boot environment.
