Applies to:Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 to 10 1/13 U11 [Release 10.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
By default, Solaris 10 installs the Solaris Operating System to a ZFS rpool with a flat filesystem layout. It is sometimes desriable to have a dedicated /var ZFS dataset to which quotas can be applied. At OS installation time, a separate /var can be defined. The goal of this How To document demonstrates how to separate the /var directory to a new ZFS dataset without having to re-install the Solaris OS.
