Unmounting Boot Environments

You can use the beadm command to unmount an existing boot environment. When you unmount a boot environment, the zones in that environment are also unmounted. All mount points are returned to their states prior to being mounted.

Note - You cannot unmount the boot environment that is currently booted.

The command syntax is as follows.

beadm unmount [-f] BeName

The command unmounts the specified boot environment.

The –f option forcefully unmounts the boot environment even if it is currently busy.
