OpenSolaris 2008.11 Managing Boot Environments

Creating Custom Names for Boot Environments

The beadm rename command enables you to rename an existing boot environment. This command enables you to create a custom name for a boot environment, a name that is more meaningful for your particular situation. For example, you could rename boot environments to specify how you customized that environment. The boot environment's dataset name is also changed to conform with the new boot environment name.

Note - An active boot environment cannot be renamed. Only an inactive boot environment can be renamed. If you want to rename the active boot environment, first, make a different boot environment active.

How to Rename a Boot Environment

  • Use the following command to rename the boot environment:
    $ beadm rename beName newBeName

    Note - If the new name is already in use, the beadm rename command fails.
