Creating a Boot Environment

To modify an existing BE, a best practice approach is to directly work on the BE's backup in order to preserve the original BE. The BE backup or clone would be listed as an alternate boot environment in the GRUB menu on x86 systems or in the boot menu on SPARC systems.

When you clone a BE, all supported zones in that BE are copied into the clone.
