Resources Included in the Configuration by Default

Devices, file systems, and privileges in a branded zone are included in the configuration by default.

Configured Devices in solaris10 Branded Zones

The devices supported by each zone are documented in the man pages and other documentation for that brand. The solaris10 zone does not allow the addition of any unsupported or unrecognized devices. The framework detects any attempt to add an unsupported device. An error message is issued that indicates the zone configuration cannot be verified.

To learn more about device considerations in non-global zones, see Device Use in Non-Global Zones.

Privileges Defined in solaris10 Branded Zones

Processes are restricted to a subset of privileges. Privilege restriction prevents a zone from performing operations that might affect other zones. The set of privileges limits the capabilities of privileged users within the zone.

Default, required default, optional, and prohibited privileges are defined by each brand. You can also add or remove certain privileges by using the limitpriv property as shown in Step 8 of How to Configure the Zone. The table Table 25-1 lists all of the Solaris privileges and the status of each privilege with respect to zones.

For more information about privileges, see the ppriv(1) man page and System Administration Guide: Security Services.
