Note that you perform the internal zone configuration when you log in to the unconfigured zone for the first time. This is described in Internal Zone Configuration.
You must accept the network configuration already specified in zonecfg for shared-IP zones.
If you plan to use an /etc/sysidcfg file to perform initial zone configuration, as described in How to Use an /etc/sysidcfg File to Perform the Initial Zone Configuration, create the sysidcfg file and place it the zone's /etc directory before you boot the zone.
You must be the global administrator or a user with the Zone Security rights profile in the global zone to perform this procedure.
global# zlogin -C s10-zone
global# zoneadm -z s10-zone boot
You will see a display similar to the following in the zlogin window:

Press Return to display the prompt again.
If you enter an incorrect response and try to restart the configuration, you might experience difficulty when you attempt the process again. This occurs because the sysidtools can store your previous responses.
If this happens, use the following workaround from the global zone to restart the configuration process.
global# zlogin -S zonename /usr/sbin/sys-unconfig
For more information on the sys-unconfig command, see the sys-unconfig(1M) man page.
