A physical storage device
A Solaris Volume Manager controlled RAID–1 volume
A Veritas VXFS controlled volume
However, the new boot environment's target must be a Solaris Volume Manager RAID-1 volume. For example, the slice that is designated for a copy of the root (/) file system must be /dev/vx/dsk/rootvol. rootvol is the volume that contains the root (/) file system.
In this example, the current boot environment contains the root (/) file system on a volume that is not a Solaris Volume Manager volume. The new boot environment is created with the root (/) file system on the Solaris Volume Manager RAID-1 volume c0t2d0s0. The lucreate command migrates the current volume to the Solaris Volume Manager volume. The name of the new boot environment is svm_be. The lustatus command reports if the new boot environment is ready to be activated and be rebooted. The new boot environment is activated to become the current boot environment.
# lucreate -n svm_be -m /:/dev/md/dsk/d1:mirror,ufs \ -m /:/dev/dsk/c0t2d0s0:attach # lustatus # luactivate svm_be # lustatus # init 6
