Logical Domains 1.3 Administration Guide

ProcedureCreate a Snapshot of a Disk Image of an Unconfigured System

  1. Bind and start the original domain.

  2. Execute the sys-unconfig command.

  3. After the sys-unconfig command completes, the domain halts.

  4. Stop and unbind the domain; do not reboot it.

  5. Take a snapshot of the domain boot disk image.

    For example:

    primary# zfs snapshot ldmpool/ldg1/disk0@unconfigured

    At this point you have the snapshot of the boot disk image of an unconfigured system.

  6. Clone this image to create a new domain which, when first booted, asks for the configuration of the system.
