System Administration Guide: Virtualization Using the Solaris Operating System

ProcedureHow to Log In to the 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, my-zone.

    global# zlogin -C my-zone

    Note –

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

    starting rpc services: rpcbind done.
    syslog service starting.
    The system is ready.

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