Platform Notes: Using luxadm Software

Setting the Boot Device Variable (set_boot_dev)

Use the set_boot_dev subcommand to set the boot-device variable in the system PROM to a physical device name. The set_boot_device subcommand normally runs interactively; it requests confirmation for setting the default boot-device in the PROM.

Supported on:

luxadm [ -v ] set_boot_dev [ -y ] pathname

Table 2-23 set_boot_dev Options and Arguments




A block special device or a mount-point 


Runs non-interactively; no confirmation is requested or required
