Does data in /var filesystem is lost on reboot in Solaris

Hi experts,

Does data in /var filesystem is lost on reboot in Solaris?

We have 2 critical files in /var/personal directory, just need to know if it is lost on reboot or does not.

Thanks and regards

Hi,

No files will be erased between reboots over the /var data system. So you can boot them and won't be loosing any files unless you have a custom special script running after a boot operation which is very unlikely.

Cheers,
K.

No data will be lost on reboot in Solaris with any directories, whcih has been definded in /etc/vfstab. But usually any user (personal) data should store in a seperated dir such as /home or user defind dir other than root, /usr /var etc. just in case of crashed OS.

no directory will be lost. only filesystems that are not mounted automatically will not be mounted and after reboot you can remount them

If you have files in /tmp dir then they might be deleted
