Changes to /etc/system may not be complete without updating boot_archive (Doc ID 2477027.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 19, 2022

Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 11 11/11 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When a change to /etc/system is needed, a system reboot is often required. This reboot updates the boot_archive and activates the new tunable. If the system hangs, is halted, or a break issued before the reboot, the boot_archive is not updated and the new tunable is not active upon boot.
