When you create a new boot environment, some directories and files can be excluded from a copy to the new boot environment. If you have excluded a directory, you can also reinstate specified subdirectories or files under the excluded directory. These subdirectories or files that have been restored are then copied to the new boot environment. For example, you could exclude from the copy all files and directories in /etc/mail but include all files and directories in /etc/mail/staff. For example, the following command copies the staff subdirectory to the new boot environment.
# lucreate -n second_disk -x /etc/mail -y /etc/mail/staff
Caution - Use the file-exclusion options with caution. Do not remove files or directories that are required by the system.
For examples of customizing the directories and files when creating a boot environment, see Creating a Boot Environment and Customizing the Content.
