ProcedureSolaris 10 3/05 Through Solaris 10 11/06: How to Modify a Property Type in a Zone Configuration

Use this procedure to reset a standalone property that does not have related properties to configure. For example, to remove the existing pool association, you can reset the pool resource to null.

  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. Select the zone to be modified, my-zone in this procedure.

    global# zonecfg -z my-zone
  3. Reset the property to be changed, the existing pool association in this procedure.

    zonecfg:my-zone> set pool=""
  4. Commit the zone configuration for the zone.

    zonecfg:my-zone> commit
  5. Exit the zonecfg command.

    zonecfg:my-zone> exit

    Note that even if you did not explicitly type commit at the prompt, a commit is automatically attempted when you type exit or an EOF occurs.

    Committed changes made through zonecfg take effect the next time the zone is booted.
