Solaris 10 Whole Root Zones Example

This example provides guidelines for installing Java ES software in a Solaris 10 whole root zone.

ProcedureTo Develop a Sequence for Solaris 10 Whole Root Zones

The following high-level tasks are required:

  1. Verifying that Solaris 10 is installed on your host

    The global zone is automatically created.

  2. Verifying that all your whole root zones are in the running state

    A zone is in the running state when it has been configured, installed, and booted. For information on whole root zones, refer to Chapter 18, Planning and Configuring Non-Global Zones (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Solaris Zones.

  3. Checking the installation sequence guidelines

    Check to see what sequence guidelines apply. Refer to Table 2–1.

  4. Checking the installation prerequisites

    Check to see what installation prerequisites apply. Refer to Table 1–3.

  5. Starting the Java ES installer in the desired whole root zone

  6. At component selection, choosing the components you want

    If a component cannot be installed in a whole root zone, then it will be unavailable for component selection.

  7. Viewing the Installation Summary and Log

  8. Completing postinstallation configuration as needed

    Chapter 6, Completing Postinstallation Configuration provides postinstallation configuration instructions.

  9. Starting product components

    Chapter 7, Verifying Installed Product Components provides procedures for starting and stopping the Java ES product components.

  10. Repeating this process in additional whole root zones as needed
