Zone Installation (Task Map)

For Instructions
(Optional) Verify a configured zone prior to installing the zone.
Ensure that a zone meets the requirements for installation. If you skip this procedure, the verification is performed automatically when you install the zone.
Install a configured zone.
Install a zone that is in the configured state.
Solaris 8/07: Obtain the universally unique identifier (UUID) for the zone.
This separate identifier, assigned when the zone is installed, is an alternate way to identify a zone.
(Optional) Transition an installed zone to the ready state.
You can skip this procedure if you want to boot the zone and use it immediately.
Boot a zone.
Booting a zone places the zone in the running state. A zone can be booted from the ready state or from the installed state. Note that you must perform the internal zone configuration when you log in to the zone after booting it for the first time.
Boot a zone in single-user mode.
Boots only to milestone svc:/milestone/single-user:default. This milestone is equivalent to init level s. See the init(1M) and svc.startd(1M) man pages.
