ProcedureHow to Mark an Installed lx Branded Zone Incomplete

If administrative changes on the system have rendered a zone unusable or inconsistent, it is possible to change the state of an installed zone to incomplete.

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. Mark the zone testzone incomplete.

    global# zoneadm -z testzone mark incomplete
  3. Use the list subcommand with the -i and -v options to verify the status.

    global# zoneadm list -iv

    You will see a display that is similar to the following:

    ID  NAME       STATUS        PATH                   BRAND      IP
    0   global     running       /                       native     shared
    -   testzone   incomplete    /export/home/testzone   lx         shared
Marking a Zone Incomplete

Note –

Marking a zone incomplete is irreversible. The only action that can be taken on a zone marked incomplete is to uninstall the zone and return it to the configured state. See How to Uninstall a Branded Zone.
