|Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 Installation Guide: Live Upgrade and Upgrade Planning Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 Information Library|
You can use Live Upgrade to migrate your UFS root (/) file system with non-global zones installed on a ZFS root pool. All non-global zones that are associated with the file system are also copied to the new boot environment. The non-global zone migration scenarios listed in the following table are supported.
On a system with a UFS root (/) file system and non-global zones installed, the non-global zones are migrated if the zone is in a non-shared file system as part of the UFS to ZFS migration, or the zone is cloned when you upgrade within the same ZFS pool. If a non-global zone exists in a shared UFS file system, to migrate to another ZFS root pool, you must first upgrade the non-global zone, as in previous Solaris releases.
For more planning information when migrating to a ZFS root pool, see System Requirements and Limitations When Using Live Upgrade.
For more limitations on ZFS and non-global zones, see Using ZFS on a Solaris System With Zones Installed in Oracle Solaris ZFS Administration Guide.
