System Administration Guide: Virtualization Using the Solaris Operating System

Zone Application Environment

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

After 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. For more information, see Internal Zone Configuration and Performing the Initial Internal Zone Configuration. Note that the default locale and time zone for a zone can be configured independently of the global settings.
