Overview of the solaris10 Zone Migration Process

The virtual-to-virtual (V2V) process for migrating an Oracle Solaris 10 native zone to a solaris10 branded zone supports the same archive formats as P2V. This process uses the zoneadm attach subcommand, which is the existing interface for migrating zones from one system to another. The solaris10 brand attach subcommand uses the following options, which correspond to the same options in the install subcommand.

-a path
Specifies a path to an archive to unpack into the zone. Full flash archive and pax, cpio, gzip compressed cpio, bzip compressed cpio, and level 0 ufsdump are supported.
-d path
Specifies a path to a tree of files as the source for the installation.
Use the -d option with the dash parameter to direct that the existing directory layout be used in the zonepath. Thus, if the administrator manually sets up the zonepath directory before the installation, the -d option can be used to indicate that the directory already exists.
