Creating a Unified Archive

    You can use the archiveadm create command to create a Unified Archive. By default, a clone archive is created. Some useful options to the command include:

  • –D to exclude specified datasets

  • –e to exclude bootable media

  • –r to create a recovery archive

  • –z to include specified zones

  • –Z to exclude specified zones

Once an archive is created, you can select from several methods to deploy a system using an archive. See Deploying Unified Archives for more information. For a full list of all of the options see the archiveadm(1M) man page.
