Using an Existing Snapshot
A snapshot of a boot environment is not bootable. However, you can
create a new boot environment from an existing snapshot. Then you can activate
and boot that new boot environment.
How to Create a Boot Environment From an Existing Snapshot
- Use the following command to create a new boot environment from a snapshot.
$ beadm create -e [email protected] beName
Replace the variable, [email protected], with the name of an existing snapshot. As
described in the previous task, snapshot names use the format [email protected], where BEname
is the name of an existing boot environment, and snapshotdescription is a description of
a specific snapshot made from the existing boot environment.
Replace the variable, BEname, with a custom name for your new boot environment.
See the following example.
$ beadm create -e [email protected] BE2
This command creates a new boot environment, named BE2, from the existing snapshot
named [email protected] You can active this boot environment by using the next procedure.
