Updating OpenSolaris b121 to b122 results in kernel panic (NOTICE: spa_import_rootpool: error 5)
Upgrading to the b122 bits on my laptop resulted in a kernel panic and reboots upon boot attempt. See this bug: http://bugs.opensolaris.org/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6875025
My work-around for this is to boot into my working BE (b121) and do the following:
beadm mount b122 /mnt
copy from /kernel to /mnt/kernel these bits:
bootadm update-archive -R /mnt
My system then booted successfully to b122.
