Data Preparation

By default, all datasets other than swap and dump volumes are included when a Unified Archive is created. Datasets that are not needed for redeployment may be excluded using the exclude-dataset option (–D) to the archiveadm create command. Because directory and file exclusion lists are not provided, remove any temporary data or data that is otherwise not needed for redeployment prior to archive creation. When possible, place optional temporary data directories or any other data not needed for redeployment in their own datasets so that you can use the exclude-dataset option.
