    In this example, an archive is installed on the second_disk boot environment. The archive is located on the local system. The operating systems versions for the -s and -a options are both Solaris 9 releases. All files are overwritten on second_disk except shareable files.

    # luupgrade -f -n second_disk \
    -s /net/installmachine/export/solaris9/OS_image \
    -a /net/server/archive/solaris9 

    The boot environment is ready to be activated.
