|Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 Installation Guide: Solaris Live Upgrade and Upgrade Planning|
You can use Solaris Live Upgrade to migrate your UFS root (/) file system with non-global zones installed on a ZFS root pool. All non-global zones that are associated with the file system are also copied to the new boot environment. The following non-global zone migration scenarios are supported:
On a system with a UFS root (/) file system and non-global zones installed, the non-global zones are migrated if the zone is in a non-shared file system as part of the UFS to ZFS migration. Or, the zone is cloned when you upgrade within the same ZFS pool. If a non-global zone exists in a shared UFS file system, to migrate to another ZFS root pool, you must first upgrade the non-global zone, as in previous Solaris releases.
For more planning information when migrating to a ZFS root pool, see System Requirements and Limitations When Using Solaris Live Upgrade.
For more limitations on ZFS and non-global zones, see Using ZFS on a Solaris System With Zones Installed in Oracle Solaris ZFS Administration Guide.
