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 Creating and Using Oracle Solaris Zones .

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