I would need to convert my ZFS files systems to pre Solaris Volume Manager (SVM) is there any way, tool ... to do it
This is the hardware and SO:
SunOS 5.10 Generic_147440-10 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V490
any ideas on how this can be acheived?
suggest please Thanks,
There is no way to convert an ZFS pool into SVM volume manager.
however, if you have a mirrored pool, you may consider
- detaching the mirror drive and initialize it with svm and then copy your data manually to the new SVM volume.
- Destroy the ZFS pool and initialize and attach the disk to the SVM volume.
I have tried to migrate solaris 10 (zfs) to (SVM), By LiveUpgrade be "copied" the OS FS zfs to ufs structure (SVM), but this message appears from LiveUpgrade:
ERROR: File system template option -m is not allowed when BE has ZFS root
We need to migrate the OS within rpool (zfs) to SVM. Is there a procedure?
Progress ..... ...
I trying to run flarcreate:
command: flarcreate -n solaris10 -c -S -R / /imagen/solaris10.flar
I've had to remove the "-x" because I get the following:
"ERROR: The A, f, F, x, x, y and z options are not compatible with archiving to ZFS pool"
Then I try to boot from DVD and select "Flash Image" , so when I select the image Flar created appears:
"ERROR: The file type is ZFS can not be used to install a system"
I think it does not work fine with zfs. Is there something that I'm not doing well, when I run the flar create?
thanks very much for your input
I don't know of any automated tools that can convert a ZFS root file system to a UFS root file system.
The Solaris tools are generally to migrate UFS to ZFS and not the other way around.
You can use tar or cpio to copy the ZFS data into a UFS file system, but this method is probably not
very helpful for copying a root file system.
I think you are better off re-installing one of your systems back to UFS and then using that image
to replicate/install other systems.
