Restoring root partition
Posted on 1998-04-18
The situation: On a Sparc2 with Solaris 2.5, I am replacing the boot disk which has slice0 root, slice 1 swap, slice 7 data. I ufsdump the root and data partitions, then booted from cdrom in single user mode with "b cdrom -s".
The Question: How do ufsrestore the root partition? It appears that when booted from cdrom the root is mounted from the cdrom. Therefore I cannot restore to root since it is already there and it is also read-only being that it on the cdrom. Obviously i'm missing something here, what do i need to do to ufsrestore back to the root???
