Moving disk 1 to disk 2 and booting from disk 2
Posted on 2004-08-20
I am currently working from a solaris 8 OS. I would like to move the contents of scsi disk 1 to scsi disk 2, and then boot from disk 2. Disk 2 will have partitions that are different from disk 1. I am familiar with using ufsdump to backup file systems/partitions and restoring the partitions to a /mnt subdirectory. What is confusing to a unix novice like myself is how would you install the bootblk on the secondary drive and when you boot to disk2, what happens to the mountpoints at /mnt/* ?
Thanks alot for your help!!!
