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.

To Update a Previously Configured Boot Environment

This procedure copies source files over outdated files on a boot environment that was previously created.

  1. Become superuser or assume an equivalent role.

    Roles contain authorizations and privileged commands. For more information about roles, see Configuring RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Type:
    # lumake -n  BE_name [-s source_BE] [-t  time] [-m email_address]
    -n BE_name

    Specifies the name of the boot environment that has file systems that are to be replaced.

    -s source_BE

    (Optional) Specifies the name of the source boot environment that contains the file systems to be copied to the target boot environment. If you omit this option, lumake uses the current boot environment as the source.

    -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.
