You can retrieve a Solaris Flash archive from a local device if you stored the Solaris Flash archive on a file system-oriented, random-access device, such as a diskette or a DVD. Use the following syntax for the archive_location keyword.
You can retrieve an archive from stream-oriented devices, such as tape, by using the syntax for local tape.
archive_location local_device device path/filename file_system_type
The name of the drive where you stored the Solaris Flash archive. If the device name is a canonical path, the device is mounted directly. If you supply a device name that is not a canonical path, the Solaris Flash installation utilities add /dev/dsk/ to the path.
The path to the Solaris Flash archive, relative to the root of the file system on the device you specified. If the path contains $HOST, the Solaris Flash installation utilities replace $HOST with the name of the clone system that you are installing.
The name of the Solaris Flash archive file.
Specifies the type of file system on the device. If you do not supply a file system type, the Solaris Flash installation utilities attempt to mount a UFS file system. If the UFS mount fails, the Solaris Flash installation utilities attempt to mount an HSFS file system.
To retrieve an archive from a local hard drive that is formatted as a UFS file system, use the following command:
archive_location local_device c0t0d0s0 /archives/$HOST
To retrieve an archive from a local CD-ROM that has an HSFS file system, use the following command:
archive_location local_device c0t0d0s0 /archives/usrarchive
