Deploy Oracle Solaris 10 Zones Workflow
12c Release 2 (188.8.131.52.0)
This workflow provides an end-to-end example for how to use Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center.
Workflows are divided into two categories: Deploy and Operate. This workflow shows how to use Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center to deploy zones on an Oracle Solaris 10 operating system and how to create and add the zones to a server pool.
A zone is a virtualized operating system environment created within a single instance of the Oracle Solaris operating system. Zones provide an isolated and secure environment for running software applications. You can either create zones using Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center or discover and manage existing zones. This workflow describes the requirements and steps needed to create and efficiently manage zones using Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center.
You can create server pools to manage the resources used by the zones and improve availability. Server pools for zones contain one or more zones that have the same configuration and access to the same storage and network resources. You can manually balance the load, or you can configure the software to automatically balance the load between members of the server pool.
The following lists the permissions and roles that are required to complete the tasks in the workflow:
Provision Oracle Solaris
Discover and manage Oracle Solaris
Create and manage the zone profiles and plans
Apply Deployment Plans
Select targets for the job and apply the plan to create zones.
Create a zone server pool
Oracle Solaris 10 must be agent-managed to complete the tasks in this workflow. You can discover and manage an existing Oracle Solaris 10 OS, or you can provision Oracle Solaris 10 on a new or existing system.
The left side of Figure 1 indicates prerequisite tasks and workflows. Before you begin this workflow, ensure that Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center is installed and configured, that your libraries and networks are deployed and configured, and that your hardware and operating systems are discovered and managed in the software.
The right side of Figure 1 is the workflow for how to deploy Oracle Solaris 10 zones. Zones require an Oracle Solaris operating system. You can use an existing system, or provision an operating system. This workflow includes tasks to create Oracle Solaris 10 zones, and then create a server pool to efficiently manage the zones. The end of the workflow is to view the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Operate Zones Workflow.
At the end of this workflow, you will have Oracle Solaris 10 zones available for you to use as separate operating systems and a server pool to manage the resources. See the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Operate Zones Workflow for how to monitor and manage the zones. For how to deploy Oracle Solaris 11 zones and server pools, see the Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center Deploy Oracle Solaris 11 Zones Workflow.
