Description

When running from a live image (i.e. there is no current running boot environment), beadm will fail with "No such BE." when trying to destroy any boot environment.
Steps to reproduce:
  1. Boot from live (or installer) image
  2. zpool import rpool
  3. beadm list (will show BEs from the imported rpool)
  4. cat /rpool/boot/grub/menu.lst (the boot menu file is present)
  5. beadm destroy bename (will not be able to destroy be)

Sample session:

root@unknown:~# zpool list
no pools available
root@unknown:~# beadm list
No boot environments found on this system.
root@unknown:~# zpool import rpool
root@unknown:~# beadm list
