Moving an lx Branded Zone

This procedure is used to move a zone to a new location on the same system by changing the zonepath. The zone must be halted. The new zonepath must be on a local file system. The normal zonepath criteria described in Resource and Property Types apply.

How to Move a Zone

  1. Become superuser, or assume the Primary Administrator role.

    Roles are described in Using the Solaris Management Tools With RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Halt the zone to be moved, db-zone in this procedure.
    global# zoneadm -z db-zone halt
  3. Use the zoneadm command with the move subcommand to move the zone to a new zonepath, /export/zones/db-zone.
    global# zoneadm -z db-zone move /export/zones/db-zone
  4. Verify the path.
    global# zoneadm list -iv
      ID NAME             STATUS         PATH                  BRAND      IP
       0 global           running        /                     native     shared
       - lx-zone          installed      /export/home/lx-zone  lx         shared
       - db-zone          installed      /export/zones/db-zone lx         shared
