Moving a Non-Global Zone

This procedure is used to move the zone to a new location on the same system by changing the zonepath. The zone must be halted. The normal zonepath criteria described in Resource Types and Properties apply.

This information also applies to moving solaris10 branded zones. For information on solaris10 branded zones, see Part III, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones.

Note - You cannot move a zone that is present in other BEs. You can either delete those BEs first, or create a new zone at the new path by cloning the zone.

Note - You cannot move a zone on shared storage with a rootzpool resource to a different location on the system. A rename of the zonepath is supported.

How to Move a Zone That Is Not on Shared Storage

You must be the global administrator or a user with appropriate authorizations in the global zone to perform this procedure.

  1. Be superuser, or have equivalent authorizations.
  2. Halt the zone to be moved, db-zone in this procedure.
    global# zoneadm -z db-zone halt
  3. Use the zoneadm command with the move subcommand to move the zone to a new zonepath, /zones/db-zone.
    global# zoneadm -z db-zone move /zones/db-zone
  4. Verify the path.
