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 has 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, Oracle Solaris Zones, in Oracle Solaris Administration: Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones, and Resource Management.

The beadm utility includes support for creating and administering non-global zone boot environments.
