This feature is available in the Solaris 10 1/06 release.
The Solaris Zones feature provides the ability to configure non-global zones in a single instance of Solaris, the global zone. A non-global zone is an application execution environment in which processes are isolated from all other zones. If you are running a system with non-global zones installed, you can use standard Solaris upgrade programs to upgrade to the Solaris 1/06 release. You can use either the Solaris interactive installation program or custom JumpStart to upgrade. The process of upgrading with non-global zones installed has some limitations.
A limited number of custom JumpStart keywords is supported.
You must use the Solaris Operating System DVD or a DVD-created network installation image. You cannot use the Solaris Software CD media or a CD network installation image to upgrade a system.
On a system with non-global zones installed, do not use Solaris Live Upgrade to upgrade your system. While you can create a boot environment with the lucreate command, the luupgrade command cannot upgrade a boot environment that has non-global zones installed. In that case, the upgrade fails and an error message is displayed.
For a list of supported custom JumpStart keywords, see the Solaris 10 Installation Guide: Custom JumpStart and Advanced Installations.
For details about using the Solaris interactive installation program, see the Solaris 10 Installation Guide: Solaris Live Upgrade and Upgrade Planning.
