Question How to update zfs-based flar?


Hello!

I have ZFS-based flash archive (flar file). I need to install to it several additional packages and patches. As I know, it is possible for USF-based flar, but how to do it with ZFS-based one?

How would you do it with UFS based flars ?

  1. Unpack flar using flar split
  2. Uncompress it
  3. uncpio
  4. pkgadd

I have no ZFS flar to check but I guess a similar approach might be doable:
  • Unpack flar using flar split
  • Uncompress the archive
  • read the datastream (zfs receive ...)
  • pkgadd ..
  • write the datastream (zfs send ...)
  • Repack the flar
