Booting a zone places the zone in the running state. A zone can be booted from the ready state or from the installed state. A zone in the installed state that is booted transparently transitions through the ready state to the running state. Zone login is allowed for zones in the running state.
You must be the global administrator in the global zone to perform this procedure.
global# zoneadm -z s8-zone boot
global# zoneadm list -v
You will see a display that is similar to the following:
ID NAME STATUS PATH BRAND IP 0 global running / native shared 1 s8-zone running /export/home/s8-zone solaris8 shared
For more information on booting zones and boot options, see Chapter 20, Installing, Booting, Halting, Uninstalling, and Cloning Non-Global Zones (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Oracle Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Oracle Solaris Zones.
