Thanks, worked for my laptop as well, with its split-root configuration (and thus upfating in the pre-created ABE, as automated by scripts on the Split-Root installation). I had to manually intervene into the documented procedure though:
* created/mounted the BE with beadm-clone.sh (applies custom dataset attrs like greater compression or quotas)
* set the new publisher url as Alexander wrote, but prefixed with the altroot (pkg -R /a set-publisher...)
* updated the ABE etc. following thr documented procedure

So I verified it is still relevant ;)
