Existing Shared Content in Oracle Solaris

Some files must be shared across BEs to preserve normal system operation in an environment with multiple BEs. The following directories are already shared across BEs by IPS:

/var/audit
/var/cores
/var/crash
/var/mail

Within each BE, these directories are symbolic links to the following shared directories:

/var/share/audit
/var/share/cores
/var/share/crash
/var/share/mail

These shared directories are in the VARSHARE dataset, which is a shared dataset mounted at /var/share.

Other data that needs to be shared across BEs can be handled similarly.
