Displaying the Status of All Boot Environments

Use the lustatus command to display the information about the boot environment. If no boot environment is specified, the status information for all boot environments on the system is displayed.

The following details for each boot environment are displayed:

  • Name – Name of each boot environment.

  • Complete – Indicates that no copy or create operations are in progress. Also, the boot environment can be booted. Any current activity or failure in a create or upgrade operation causes a boot environment to be incomplete. For example, if a copy operation is in process or scheduled for a boot environment, that boot environment is considered incomplete.

  • Active – Indicates if this is the active boot environment.

  • ActiveOnReboot – Indicates if the boot environment becomes active on next reboot of the system.

  • CopyStatus – Indicates if the creation or copy of the boot environment is scheduled, active, or in the process of being upgraded. A status of SCHEDULED prevents you from performing live upgrade copy, rename, or upgrade operations.

To Display the Status of All Boot Environments

  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:
    # lustatus BE_name

    Specifies the name of the inactive boot environment to view status. If BE_name is omitted, lustatus displays status for all boot environments in the system.

    In this example, the status for all boot environments is displayed.

    # lustatus
    boot environment   Is        Active  Active     Can        Copy
    Name               Complete  Now     OnReboot   Delete     Status
    disk_a_S9           yes       yes     yes        no       -    
    disk_b_S10database   yes       no      no         yes      COPYING  
    disk_b_S9a          no        no      no         yes      - 

    Note - You could not perform copy, rename, or upgrade operations on disk_b_S9a because it is not complete, nor on disk_b_S10database because a live upgrade operation is in progress.
