SPARC Solaris OS important config files


I'm establishing a backup policy for config files for my SPARC Solaris mainframe, so my question would be which are the files I must include in the backup policy?I'm having Solaris Containers also.

I'm not a SPARC Solaris expert.

Thank you very much!

If you back OS that will include all config files, or do you have other application config file as well to back up?

Just a simple backup for now, via ssh. NB will be purchased im the future.

A simple OS back should include / (root), /usr, /var and /opt filesystems.
My suggestion will be to backup everything expect /tmp, /var/tmp, and the apps file systems since you are only making a backup of the OS

When you plan to recover from that backup just be aware probably you will need to make some steps before try to boot the OS like:

* Recreate Bootblock
* If you are using SVM on root FS, modify the /etc/vfstab
*  recreate boot_archive
