I encountered this error during a live upgrade activity.
After running lucreate command i had this error:

Discovering physical storage devices

Searching /dev for possible boot environment filesystem devices

Template entry -:/dev/dsk/c0t2d0s1:swap skipped.

luconfig: ERROR: Template filesystem definition failed for -, all devices are not applicable..
ERROR: Configuration of boot environment failed.

During my analsyis i found that c0t2d0s1 doesn’t have tag “swap” but “unassigned”.
I changed in swap , obtaining from format:

1 swap wu 5141 – 6683 3.00GB (1543/0/0) 6295440

I tried to run lucreate and all was fine!!!
