I have the following file system.

/export/home       (/dev/dsk/c0t0d0s7 ):10074490 blocks   611516 files

bash-3.2# lucreate -c solenv1 -m /:/dev/dsk/c0t1d0s0:ufs -n solenv2

bash-3.2# lustatus
Boot Environment           Is       Active Active    Can    Copy
Name                       Complete Now    On Reboot Delete Status
-------------------------- -------- ------ --------- ------ ----------
solenv1                    yes      yes    yes       no     -
solenv2                    yes      no     no        yes    -

Do i need to run another lucreate for /opt and /export/home file system? If so how do i run lucreate again?

I am not quite sure how live update works?

You need to run in one go, ie:

# lucreate -c solenv1 -n -m /solenv2 -m/:/dev/dsk/c0t1d0s0:ufs
-m/opt:/dev/dsk/c0t1d0s3:ufs -m/export/home:/devdsk/c0t1d0s7:ufs

After that to activate solenv2:

# luactivate solenv2
Then reboot.
