Swap file(s) not added at boot, but can be added manually
Last updated on MAY 29, 2017
Applies to:Solaris Operating System - Version 8.0 and later
Extra swap space has been created using the following commands:
#mkfile 500m /opt/myswap #swap -a /opt/myswap
The extra swap space appears when swap -l is executed.
Then the /etc/vfstab file has the following added to it:
/opt/myswap - - swap - no -
However, when the system is rebooted, the extra swap space does not appear.
Doing "swap -a /opt/myswap" adds it every time.
