You can clone a source zone multiple times from an existing snapshot that was originally taken when you cloned a zone.
You must be the global administrator in the global zone to perform this procedure.
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.
Configure the zone zone2.
Specify that an existing snapshot be used to create new-zone2.
global# zoneadm -z zone2 clone -s zeepool/zones/lx-zone@SUNWzone1 lx-zone
The system displays:
Cloning snapshot zeepool/zones/lx-zone@SUNWzone1
The zoneadm command validates the software from the snapshot SUNWzone1, and clones the snapshot.
List the zones on the system.
global# zoneadm list -iv ID NAME STATUS PATH BRAND IP 0 global running / native shared - lx-zone installed /zeepool/zones/lx-zone lx shared - zone1 installed /zeepool/zones/zone1 lx shared - zone2 installed /zeepool/zones/zone1 lx shared
