Note the following support specifications for non-global zones in the beadm utility and in related processes:
When you use the pkg command, the command only upgrades Solaris brand zones.
Starting with the Oracle Solaris 11/11 release, the beadm utility is supported inside a non-global zone.
Non-global zone support is limited to ZFS support.
Zones are not supported in the rpool/ROOT namespace. Non-global zones are cloned or copied only when the original zone is within the shared area for the global zone, for example, within rpool/export or within rpool/zones.
Although the beadm utility affects the non-global zones on your system, the beadm utility does not display zones information. Use the zoneadm utility to view changes in the zones in your boot environment. For example, use the zoneadm list command to view a list of all current zones on the system.
For further information, see the zoneadm(1M) man page.
Not all of the beadm command options can be used in non-global zones. See the specific limitations for each command option in Chapter 3, Creating Boot Environments and Snapshots and Chapter 4, Administering Boot Environments.
