Applies to:Sun Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) - Version 11.10.0 and later

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.
