Listing Existing Boot Environments and Snapshots

You can display information about snapshots, boot environments, and datasets that were created by the beadm command by using the beadm list command. The beadm list command output also displays boot environments that are created by the pkg command.

To view information for a specific boot environment, include a boot environment name on the command line. If a specific boot environment is not specified, the command lists information about all boot environments. The default is to list boot environments without additional information.

    The following options are available:

  • –a – Lists all available information about the boot environment. This information includes subordinate datasets and snapshots.

  • –d – Lists information about all subordinate datasets that belong to the boot environment.

  • –s – Lists information about the snapshots of the boot environment.

  • –H – Lists information in machine-parseable format. Each field in the output is separated by a semicolon.
