Sun Cluster Data Service for Solaris Containers Guide for Solaris OS

Restrictions for an HA Container

The zone path of a zone in an HA container configuration must reside on a highly available local file system. The zone must be configured on each cluster node where the zone can reside.

The zone is active on only one node at a time, and the zone's address is plumbed on only one node at a time. Application clients can then reach the zone through the zone's address, wherever that zone resides within the cluster.

Ensure that the zone's autoboot property is set to false. Setting a zone's autoboot property to false prevents the zone from being booted when the global zone is booted. The Sun Cluster HA for Solaris Containers data service can manage a zone only if the zone is booted under the control of the data service.
