|Creating and Administering Oracle Solaris 11 Boot Environments Oracle Solaris 11 Information Library|
To create additional datasets for a boot environment, use the zfs command to create a dataset located hierarchically under the root dataset of the boot environment. This dataset will not be shared with other boot environments.
When creating additional datasets for boot environments, the canmount zfs property of the dataset must be set to noauto.
For example, to create a new, non-shared dataset mounted at /myfs for the boot environment, BE1, the following command can be used.
# zfs create -o canmount=noauto rpool/ROOT/BE1/myfs
The dataset's mountpoint is inherited from the boot environment's root dataset and, hence, will be mounted at /myfs when this boot environment is in use.
For further information about the zfs create command, see the zfs(1M) man page.
