How to Mount an Alternate BE

You might need to copy or access a file from another BE for recovery purposes.

  1. Become an administrator.
  2. Mount the alternate BE.
    # beadm mount solaris-1 /mnt
  3. Access the BE.
    # ls /mnt
    bin        export     media      pkg        rpool      tmp
    boot       home       mine       platform   sbin       usr
    dev        import     mnt        proc       scde       var
    devices    java       net        project    shared
    doe        kernel     nfs4       re         src
    etc        lib        opt        root       system     
  4. Unmount the alternate BE when you're finished with it.
    # beadm umount solaris-1
