Before a physical system can be migrated, any existing non-global zones on the system must be archived and moved into zones on the new target system first.
Use the V2V process to migrate an existing zone on your Solaris 10 system to a solaris10 brand zone on aa system running the Oracle Solaris 11 Express release.
source# zonecfg -z my-zone info zonename: my-zone zonepath: /zones/my-zone brand: native autoboot: false bootargs: pool: limitpriv: scheduling-class: ip-type: shared hostid: 1337833f inherit-pkg-dir: dir: /lib inherit-pkg-dir: dir: /platform inherit-pkg-dir: dir: /sbin inherit-pkg-dir: dir: /usr net: address: 192.168.0.90 physical: bge0
source# zoneadm -z myzone halt
You should not archive a running zone since the application or system data within the zone might be captured in an inconsistent state.
source# zoneadm -s myzone ready
source# cd /zones source# find my-zone -print | cpio -oP@/ | gzip >/zones/my-zone.cpio.gz
source# cd /zones/my-zone source# find root -print | cpio -oP@/ | gzip >/zones/my-zone.cpio.gz
The sftp command described in the sftp(1) man page
Any other file transfer mechanism to copy the file.
target# zonecfg -z my-zone my-zone: No such zone configured Use 'create' to begin configuring a new zone. zonecfg:my-zone> create -t SUNWsolaris10 zonecfg:my-zone> set zonepath=/zones/myzone ...
Note - The zone's brand must be solaris10 and the zone cannot use any inherit-pkg-dir settings, even if the original zone was configured as a sparse root zone. See Part II, Oracle Solaris Zones for information on inherit-pkg-dir resources.
If the destination system has different hardware, different network interfaces, or other devices or file systems that must be configured on the zone, you must update the zone's configuration. See Chapter 16, Non-Global Zone Configuration (Overview) Chapter 17, Planning and Configuring Non-Global Zones (Tasks), and About Migrating a Zone.
target# zonecfg -z my-zone info zonename: my-zone zonepath: /zones/my-zone brand: solaris10 autoboot: false bootargs: pool: limitpriv: scheduling-class: ip-type: shared hostid: 1337833f net: address: 192.168.0.90 physical: bge0
target# zoneadm -z my-zone attach -a /zones/my-zone.cpio.gz
Once the zone installation has completed successfully, the zone is ready to boot.
You can save the zone's archive in case you need it later, or remove it from the system.
To remove the archive from the destination system:
target# rm /zones/myzone.cpio.gz
