Exit Print View

Updated: September 2020

What's New with Unified Archives in Oracle Solaris 11.4

    The following features are added in this Oracle Solaris release:

  • Support for dehydrated clones enables you to create clones with reduced file sizes for easier transport. Reduced archive sizes help ISVs in archive distribution, transfer, or backup. Unified Archives can become unencumbered from copyright and distribution rights for the OS. See Dehydrated Clone Archives.

  • Additional archiveadm create command options enable you to monitor the progress of the archiving process. See the command output in Example 1, Creating a Clone Archive That Includes All Zones. Additional options and improvements enable you to view more information about archives than previously available. See the different examples of the use of the archiveinfo command in this document as well as in the man page.
