How to Migrate a user-created UFS File System to a ZFS dataset on a New BE (Doc ID 1393221.1)

Last updated on JULY 29, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

There is a new command line option, '-m' for lucreate(1M) command of Live Upgrade (LU).
This option can be used during the UFS to ZFS BE migration to migrate the user created file system to ZFS database.

*The '-m' option is not valid if the source root file system is ZFS.*

This option is available with Live Upgrade patch 121430-66 or greater.
The release is S10U10 which included patch 121430-66.

*The '-D' option was also introduced  in patches 121430-65 (SPARC) and 121431-66 (x86) which now provides functionality to move /var to it's own dataset.
