beadm Zones Support

Zones partitioning technology is used to virtualize operating system services and provide an isolated and secure environment for running applications. Each Oracle Solaris system is a global zone. Within a global zone, specific non-global zones can be created.

For information about creating and administering non-global zones on your system, see Part II, Zones, in System Administration Guide: Oracle Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Oracle Solaris Zones .

The beadm utility includes support for non-global zones.
