SOLARIS LU: How best to prepare a slice?

By andrewchristiandc ·
Okay, gang. Got x86 Solaris running on an old Dell box. Created a Boot Environment for my existing setup.

Now I'm trying to clone the Boot Environment so that I can do the Live Upgrade. However I'm getting an error when I use the lucreate command.

"# ls

bin dev home net rmdisk var
boot devices kernel nsmail sbin vol
cdrom etc lib opt test.txt~ xfn
core export lost+found platform tmp
# lucreate -n "solenv2" -m /:/dev/dsk/c0d0s3:ufs

I presume I need to get a slice ready for the utility because the utility is not smart enough to really do any slicing itself.
Any ideas?

to get there. But.... It seems that it doesn't like your File System. What File Sys are you useing?
Which version of Solaris is it that you're working with? And why are you trying to do an install, if you installed it already? (or are you just preparing it for an install? Not quite sure on that.)
