lumake - populate a boot environment

The lumake command is part of a suite of commands that make up the Live Upgrade feature of the Solaris operating environment. See live_upgrade(5) for a description of the Live Upgrade feature. The lumake command populates (that is, copies files to) the file systems of a specified boot environment (BE) by copying files from the corresponding file systems of the active or a source (-s) BE. Any existing data on the target BE are des- troyed. All file systems on the target BE are re-created. The target BE must already exist. Use lucreate(1M) to create a new BE. The lumake command requires root privileges.


The lucompare command has the following options: -t time Setup a batch job to populate the specified BE at a specified time. The time is given in the format speci- fied by the at(1) man page. At any time, you can have only one Live Upgrade operation scheduled. You can use lucancel(1M) to cancel a scheduled lumake operation. -l error_log Error and status messages are sent to error_log, in addition to where they are sent in your current environment. -o outfile All command output is sent to outfile, in addition to where it is sent in your current environment. -m email_address Allows you to email lumake output to a specified address upon command completion. There is no checking of email_address. You can use this option only in con- junction with -t. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 22 Oct 2001 1 Maintenance Commands lumake(1M) -n BE_name Name of the BE to be populated. -s source_BE The optional name of a source BE. If you omit this option, lumake uses the current BE as the source. A BE must have the status "complete" before you can copy from it. Use lustatus(1M) to determine a BE's status.


The following exit values are returned: 0 Successful completion. >0 An error occurred.
