Reverting Snapshots

Each of the following operations creates a new running snapshot:

  • svcadm restart manifest-import

  • svcadm refresh

  • svccfg refresh

The revert subcommand reverts the administrative customizations (admin layer) of the instance specified by the -s option and its service to the values recorded in the named snapshot or the currently selected snapshot. Use the listsnap subcommand to view a list of possible snapshots for this service instance. Use the selectsnap subcommand to select a snapshot in interactive mode.

$ svcprop -p pkg/inst_root pkg/server:default
pkg/inst_root astring /export/ipsrepos/Solaris11
$ svccfg -s pkg/server:default listsnap
initial
previous
running
start
$ svcprop -s previous -p pkg/inst_root pkg/server:default
pkg/inst_root astring /var/pkgrepo

Because the revert subcommand reverts all administrative customizations, list all administrative customizations and examine their values before you revert.

$ svcprop -s previous -l admin pkg/server:default
pkg/inst_root astring /var/pkgrepo
$ svccfg -s pkg/server:default revert previous
$ svcadm refresh pkg/server:default
$ svcprop -p pkg/inst_root pkg/server:default
pkg/inst_root astring /var/pkgrepo
