Solaris 10 10/09 Installation Guide: Solaris Live Upgrade and Upgrade Planning

To Create an Empty Boot Environment

In this first step, an empty boot environment is created. Slices are reserved for the file systems that are specified, but no copy of file systems from the current boot environment occurs. The new boot environment is named second_disk.

# lucreate  -s - -m /:/dev/dsk/c0t1d0s0:ufs \  
-n second_disk

The boot environment is ready to be populated with a Solaris Flash archive.

Figure 9–3 shows the creation of an empty boot environment.
