|Managing Boot Environments With Oracle Solaris 11 Express Oracle Solaris 11 Express 11/10|
A boot environment is a bootable instance of the Oracle Solaris operating system image plus any other application software packages installed into that image. System administrators can maintain multiple boot environments on their systems, and each boot environment can have different software versions installed.
Upon the initial installation of the Oracle Solaris release onto a system, a boot environment is created. Use the beadm(1M) utility to administer additional boot environments on your system.
