Disabling Eviction of All Boot Pool Datasets

To disable automatic eviction for all datasets in the boot pool, type the following command:

$ bootadm boot-pool set eviction_algorithm=none

The command prevents any dataset removal. However, if the boot pool gets full, activities that add information to the boot pool will fail, including the following:

  • Creating a new BE, which is often done by pkg operations

  • Activating a BE whose dataset is not in the boot pool

  • Changing the policy on a BE to noevict
