Last updated on MARCH 31, 2017
Applies to:Sun Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) - Version 11.10.0 and later
Solstice DiskSuite Software - Version 4.2 and later
Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 to 10 8/11 U10 [Release 10.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
The documented procedure allows you to access a (root) file system under Solaris Volume Manager Control without unencapsulating it first. This is useful if your system cannot boot anymore and you have to boot it from failsafe, CDROM or network.
Certainly, boot archive repair is not necessary in the earlier Solaris releases.
