ProcedureTo Display the Status of All Boot Environments

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Type:

    # lustatus BE_name

    Specifies the name of the inactive boot environment to view status. If BE_name is omitted, lustatus displays status for all boot environments in the system.

    In this example, the status for all boot environments is displayed.

    # lustatus
    boot environment   Is        Active  Active     Can	    Copy
