The P2V process consists of archiving a global zone (source), and then installing a non-global zone (target) using that archive. The zonep2vchk utility must be run with an effective user id of 0.
The utility does the following:
Identifies problem areas in the source system's configuration
Minimizes the manual reconfiguration effort required
Supports migration of both Oracle Solaris 10 and Oracle Solaris 11 system images into zones on Oracle Solaris 11 releases
Supports complex network configurations in the original system image, including multiple IP interfaces, IP multipathing, and VLANs
This tool can be used to migrate an Oracle Solaris 11 physical system or an Oracle Solaris 10 physical system into a non-global zone on this release:
Migrate an Oracle Solaris 11 system into a solaris brand zone
Migrate an Oracle Solaris 10 system into a solaris10 brand zone
For Oracle Solaris 11 target systems, an add anet resource (VNIC) is included in the zonecfg output for each network resource on the source system. By default, exclusive-IP is the network type when migrating either an Oracle Solaris 11 system or an Oracle Solaris 10 system into a non-global zone on an Oracle Solaris 11 system.
