System Administration Guide: Oracle Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Oracle Solaris Zones

ProcedureHow to Log In to the lx Branded Zone Console

You must be the global administrator in the global zone to perform this procedure.

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

    To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Using the Solaris Management Tools With RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Use the zlogin command with the -C option and the name of the zone, for example, lx-zone.

    global# zlogin -C lx-zone
    [Connected to zone 'lx-zone' console]

    Note –

    If you start the zlogin session immediately after issuing the zoneadm boot command, boot messages from the zone will display:

    INIT: version 2.85 booting
    	                Welcome to CentOS
    	                Press 'I' to enter interactive startup.
    	Configuring kernel parameters:  [  OK  ]
    	Setting hostname lx-zone:  [  OK  ]
    	CentOS release 3.6 (Final)
    	Kernel 2.4.21 on an i686

  3. When the zone console displays, log in as root, press Return, and type the root password when prompted.

    lx-zone console login: root

    Note –

    Recall that the root (superuser) password is root when the zone is installed from the Sun tarball. The root (superuser) password is unset (blank) when the zone is installed from ISO images or a CD.
