Updating a Previously Configured Boot Environment
You can update the contents of a previously configured boot environment with the
Copy menu or the lumake command. File Systems from the active (source) boot
environment are copied to the target boot environment. The data on the target
is also destroyed. A boot environment must have the status “complete” before you
can copy from it. See Displaying the Status of All Boot Environments to determine a boot environment's status.
The copy job can be scheduled for a later time, and only
one job can be scheduled at a time. To cancel a scheduled copy,
see Canceling a Scheduled Create, Upgrade, or Copy Job.

- -t time
(Optional) Set up a batch job to copy over file systems on a specified boot environment at a specified time. The time is given in the format that is specified by the man page, at(1).
- -m email_address
(Optional) Enables you to send an email of the lumake output to a specified address on command completion. email_address is not checked. You can use this option only in conjunction with -t.
Example 7-1 Updating a Previously Configured Boot Environment
In this example, file systems from first_disk are copied to second_disk. When the
job is completed, an email is sent to Joe at anywhere.com.
# lumake -n second_disk -s first_disk -m [email protected]
The files on first_disk are copied to second_disk and email is sent
for notification. To cancel a scheduled copy, see Canceling a Scheduled Create, Upgrade, or Copy Job.
