cannot figure out why. I have checked the zfs properties for the current root
and none are empty and all look correct.
I figured this out.
In case it might help others:
A boot environment in Solaris must have /, /usr, and /opt in order to work and
for the LU tools to function.
You can run /opt relocated and shared, but its a frequent source of problems.
My issue was that I had /opt outside of the primary BE and didn't realize it
was not configured to be shared.
I moved it to the BE's root and was able to patch a new BE and upgrade without
"Where some they sell their dreams for small desires."
