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

ProcedureHow to Validate a Configuration Before Committing the Configuration

You can use the -n option with the -c option to test what will happen when the validation occurs. The configuration will not actually be committed.

The following command attempts to validate the configuration contained at /home/admin/newconfig. Any error conditions encountered are displayed, but the configuration itself is not modified.

  1. Become superuser, or assume a role that includes the Process Management profile.

    The System Administrator role includes the Process Management profile. For more information about roles, see Using the Solaris Management Tools With RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. Test the validity of the configuration before committing it.

    # pooladm -n -c /home/admin/newconfig
