ProcedureHow to Use Failsafe Mode to Enter an lx Branded Zone

When a connection to the zone is denied, the zlogin command can be used with the -S option to enter a minimal environment in the zone.

You must be the global administrator in the global zone to perform this procedure.

  1. Become superuser, or assume the Primary Administrator role.

    To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Using the Solaris Management Tools With RBAC (Task Map) in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration.

  2. From the global zone, use the zlogin command with the -S option to access the zone, for example, lx-zone.

    global# zlogin -S lx-zone
