How Zones Are Installed

The ipkg brand installer supports installing the zone by using either of the following methods:

The installer options are shown in the following table. See How to Install a Configured Zone for example command lines.

-a archive
The path to a cpio or pax "xustar" archive of an installed system. cpio archives can be compressed using gzip or bzip. The -d and the -a options are incompatible.
-c certificate
The path to the certificate file needed for accessing the repository.
-d path
The path to the root directory of an installed system. If path is a hyphen (-), the zonepath is assumed to be already be populated with the system image. The -d and the -a options are incompatible.
-e package_name
The name of a package to install into the zone. The -e option is used to specify an additional package to install, in addition to the base set of software which is always installed into the zone. Multiple -e options can be used.
-k key_file
The path to the key file needed for accessing the repository.
-P publisher=uri
The name of a software repository publisher and its associated URI to use to install the zone instead of the default global zone's repository.
Preserve system identity after installing the zone. The -p and the -u options are incompatible.
Install silently. The -s and the -v options are incompatible.
sys-unconfig the zone after installing it. The -p and the -u options are incompatible.
Verbose output from the install process. The -s and the -v options are incompatible.
