NAME
     lutab - list of boot environments

SYNOPSIS
     /etc/lutab

DESCRIPTION
     The file /etc/lutab is a list of the boot environments (BEs)
     configured  on  a system. There are two entries for each BE.
     These entries have the following form:

     BE_id:BE_name:completion_flag:0
     BE_id:root_slice:root_device:1

     The fields in the lutab entries are described as follows:

     BE_id A unique, internally generated id for a BE.

     BE_name
           The user-assigned name of a BE.

     completion_flag
           Indicates whether the BE is complete (C) or incomplete
           (NC). A complete BE is one that is not involved in any
           copy or upgrade operation. A BE can  be  activated  or
           compared only when it is complete.

     0     Indicates first of two lines.

     BE_id As described above.

     root_slice
           Designation of the root slice.

     root_device
           Device on which the root slice is mounted.

     1     Indicates second of two lines.

     The lutab file must not be edited by hand. Any user  modifi-
     cation  to  this file will result in the incorrect operation
     of live upgrade.
