The boot_device keyword can be used when you install either a UFS file system or a ZFS root pool. The usage for this keyword is the same in both UFS and ZFS installations.
For a complete list of keywords that can be used in a UFS or ZFS installation, see Table 8–2
For information on performing a ZFS installation, see Chapter 9, Installing a ZFS Root Pool With JumpStart
boot_device device eeprom
boot_device designates the device where the JumpStart program is to install the root (/) file system and the system's boot device. boot_device must match any filesys keywords that specify the root (/) file system and the root_device keyword.
boot_device any update
Use one of the following values.
The disk slice where the JumpStart program places the root (/) file system, for example, c0t0d0s0.
The disk where the JumpStart program places the root (/) file system, for example, c0d0.
The JumpStart program places the root (/) file system on the system's existing boot device.
The JumpStart program chooses where to place the root (/) file system. The JumpStart program attempts to use the system's existing boot device. The JumpStart program might choose a different boot device if necessary.
Choose to update or preserve the system's EEPROM.
The eeprom value enables you to update the system's EEPROM if you change the system's current boot device. By updating the system's EEPROM, the system can automatically boot from the new boot device.
x86: You must specify the preserve value.
The JumpStart program updates the system's EEPROM to the specified boot device so that the installed system automatically boots from it.
The boot device value in the system's EEPROM is not changed. If you specify a new boot device without changing the system's EEPROM, you need to change the system's EEPROM manually so it can automatically boot from the new boot device.
