Reverting a root volume before using SnapRestore

If the data you want to revert resides in the root volume, you should back up the /etc directory to another volume or another system before using SnapRestore. After you revert the root volume, you can then restore the /etc directory and reboot.


  1. If you back up the /etc directory to another volume, use the following command to make the system reboot with that volume as the root volume:
    vol options volume root

    In this way, when the system reboots during a revert, it can use the correct settings in the /etc directory.
