Zone Application Environment

The zoneadm command is used to create the zone application environment.

Before a non-global zone is booted for the first time, the internal configuration of the zone must be created. The internal configuration specifies a naming service to use, the default locale and time zone, the zone's root password, and other aspects of the application environment. The application environment is established by responding to a series of prompts that appear on the zone console, as explained in Internal Zone Configuration. Note that the default locale and time zone for a zone can be configured independently of the global settings.
