Starting with the Solaris 10 1/06 release, Solaris Zones partitioning technology provides the ability to configure non-global zones in a single instance of Solaris, the global zone. A non-global zone is an application execution environment in which processes are isolated from all other zones. If you are running a system with non-global zones installed, you can use standard Solaris upgrade programs to upgrade to the Solaris 1/06 release. You can use either the Solaris interactive installation program or custom JumpStart to upgrade. There are some limitations to upgrading with non-global zones installed.
A limited number of custom JumpStart keywords are supported. For a list of supported custom JumpStart keywords, see Solaris 10 Installation Guide: Custom JumpStart and Advanced Installations.
CD-ROMs are not distributed, but you can upgrade with a DVD-ROM or a network installation image.
On a system with non-global zones installed, do not use Solaris Live Upgrade to upgrade your system. While you can create a boot environment with the lucreate command, the luupgrade command cannot upgrade a boot environment that has non-global zones installed. In that case, the upgrade fails and an error message is displayed.
