Moving a Non-Global Zone

This procedure is used to move the zone to a new location on the same system by changing the zonepath. The zone must be halted. The new zonepath must be on a local file system. The normal zonepath criteria described in Resource and Property Types apply.

How to Move a Zone

You must be the global administrator or a user with appropriate authorizations in the global zone to perform this procedure.

  1. Be superuser, or have equivalent authorizations.

    For more information about roles, see Configuring and Using RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Security Services.

  2. Halt the zone to be moved, db-zone in this procedure.
    global# zoneadm -z db-zone halt
  3. Use the zoneadm command with the move subcommand to move the zone to a new zonepath, /zones/db-zone.
    global# zoneadm -z db-zone move /zones/db-zone
  4. Verify the path.
