Updated: April 2019

Backing Up an Oracle Solaris System by Using Unified Archives

  1. Become a zone administrator.

    You must also be assigned the Unified Archive Administration rights profile. The root role has all of these rights.

    For more information, see Assigning Limited Rights to Zone Administrators.

  2. Create a recovery archive.
    source-host$ archiveadm create -r -z zonename archive-name

    For example, using the zone name my-zone and the archive path /net/server/my-zone-archive.uar:

    host1$ archiveadm create -r -z my-zone /net/server/my-zone-archive.uar
