solaris10 Branded Internal Zone Configuration

How to Log In to the Zone Console to Complete System Identification



solaris10 Branded Internal Zone Configuration

Note that you perform the internal zone configuration when you log in to the unconfigured zone for the first time. This is described in Internal Zone Configuration.

You must accept the network configuration already specified in zonecfg for shared-IP zones.

If you plan to use an /etc/sysidcfg file to perform initial zone configuration, as described in How to Use an /etc/sysidcfg File to Perform the Initial Zone Configuration, create the sysidcfg file and place it the zone's /etc directory before you boot the zone.

How to Log In to the Zone Console to Complete System Identification

You must be the global administrator or a user with the Zone Security rights profile in the global zone to perform this procedure.

  1. Be superuser, or have the appropriate rights profile or authorizations.
  2. Use the zlogin command with the -C option and the name of the zone, s10-zone in this procedure.
    global# zlogin -C s10-zone
  3. From another terminal window, boot the zone.
    global# zoneadm -z s10-zone boot

    You will see a display similar to the following in the zlogin window:

    [NOTICE: Zone booting up]
  4. The first time you log in to the console, you are prompted to answer a series of questions. Your screen will look similar to this:

    Type the number of your choice and press Return:

    For the approximate list of questions you must answer, see Internal Zone Configuration.

  5. (Optional) If you are not using two windows as described in step 3, you might have missed the initial prompt for configuration information. If you see the following system message at zone login instead of a prompt:
    [connected to zone zonename console]

    Press Return to display the prompt again.

    If you enter an incorrect response and try to restart the configuration, you might experience difficulty when you attempt the process again. This occurs because the sysidtools can store your previous responses.

    If this happens, use the following workaround from the global zone to restart the configuration process.

    global# zlogin -S zonename /usr/sbin/sys-unconfig

    For more information on the sys-unconfig command, see the sys-unconfig(1M) man page.
