Alas there is no preinstalled failsafe sine OpenSolaris. I had reasonable
success using Firefly as a BE and/or as a miniroot stored in the main BE, and
published scripts I use to manage that setup - mostly needed to switch device
paths saved into rpool when I dual-boot OI as VM or Physical OS on my laptop.
If your system can boot from CD/DVD or USB, I suggest you take the install
media, or firefly, or ... and zpool import your pools and perhaps mount the
desired rootfs to manage it. For just GRUB menu setup and zpool settings you
shouldn't need to even mount rootfs datasets.
