Managing the Oracle Solaris Boot Archives

    In addition to administering the boot loader on x86 platforms, the bootadm command is also used to perform the following tasks to maintain Oracle Solaris boot archives:

  • List the files and directories that are included in a system's boot archive.

  • Manually update the boot archive.

The syntax of the command is as follows:

$ bootadm [subcommand] [-option] [-R altroot]

For example, the following syntax lists the files and directories in the boot archive:

$ bootadm list-archive

For more information about the bootadm command, see the bootadm(8) man page.
