Naming Unified Archives

When creating Unified Archives, to use a file name that provides information about the archive. For example, noscratch-recovery.uar could tell you that the file is a recovery archive of a system that doesn't include the scratch dataset. Note that the name of the server that the archive was created from, the deployable systems in the archive, and the date the archive was created are stored in the metadata of the archive, which you can display using the archiveadm info command. You can see additional information by adding the –v option to this command. For examples showing the command output, see Viewing Unified Archive Information.
