System Administration Guide: Oracle Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Oracle Solaris Zones

ProcedureHow to Modify a Resource Type in a Zone Configuration

You can select a resource type and modify the specification for that resource.

Note that the contents of software packages in the inherit-pkg-dir directory cannot be modified or removed after the zone has been installed with zoneadm.

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. Select the zone to be modified, my-zone in this procedure.

    global# zonecfg -z my-zone
  3. Select the resource type to be changed, for example, a resource control.

    zonecfg:my-zone> select rctl name=zone.cpu-shares
  4. Remove the current value.

    zonecfg:my-zone:rctl> remove value (priv=privileged,limit=20,action=none)
  5. Add the new value.

    zonecfg:my-zone:rctl> add value (priv=privileged,limit=10,action=none)
  6. End the revised rctl specification.

    zonecfg:my-zone:rctl> end
  7. Commit the zone configuration for the zone.

    zonecfg:my-zone> commit
  8. Exit the zonecfg command.

    zonecfg:my-zone> exit

    Note that even if you did not explicitly type commit at the prompt, a commit is automatically attempted when you type exit or an EOF occurs.

    Committed changes made through zonecfg take effect the next time the zone is booted.
