Zone Installation and Administration Concepts

The zoneadm command described in the zoneadm(1M) man page is the primary tool used to install and administer non-global zones. Operations using the zoneadm command must be run from the global zone. If RBAC is in use, subcommands that make a copy of another zone require the authorization

The following tasks can be performed using the zoneadm command:

For zone installation and verification procedures, see Chapter 19, Installing, Booting, Halting, Uninstalling, and Cloning Non-Global Zones (Tasks) and the zoneadm(1M) man page. Also refer to the zoneadm(1M) man page for supported options to the zoneadm list command. For zone configuration procedures, see Chapter 17, Planning and Configuring Non-Global Zones (Tasks) and the zonecfg(1M) man page. Zone states are described in Non-Global Zone State Model.

If you plan to produce Oracle Solaris Auditing records for zones, read Using Oracle Solaris Auditing in Zones before you install non-global zones.
