Note to Self: Manually pulling the bits out of a flar

Found this randomly. I had wanted to do this at one point but had an alternate solution at hand.


4. Split the flash image (flar split machineX.flar), then move the file "archive" to /export/zones/machineX/root/, and unpack it with cpio -i.

  • Uncompress if necessary (mv archive archive.Z; uncompress archive.Z)
  • cd to the machineX/root directory: cpio -i < /export/archive

5. Boot the machine with zoneadm -z machineZ boot and log in -- the devices will be built at that time. Sysid information is normally required at this point ...

Don't forget: send an invitation for coffee to D@vidSteed.com and I will accept!
