Using the lumount Command on a System That Contains Non-Global Zones

The lumount command provides non-global zones with access to their corresponding file systems that exist on inactive boot environments. When the global zone administrator uses the lumount command to mount an inactive boot environment, the boot environment is mounted for non-global zones as well.

In the following example, the appropriate file systems are mounted for the boot environment, newbe, on /mnt in the global zone. For non-global zones that are running, mounted, or ready, their corresponding file systems within newbe are also made available on /mnt within each zone.

# lumount -n newbe /mnt

For more information about mounting, see the lumount(1M) man page.
