Creating and Using Oracle® Solaris Zones

Information Produced

Two main categories of information are presented by the analysis:

  • Issues that can be addressed with a specific zone configuration or with configuration changes in the global zone

  • Identification of functions that cannot work inside a zone

For example, if an application sets the system clock, that can be enabled by adding the appropriate privilege to a zone, but if an application accesses kernel memory, that is never allowed inside a zone. The output distinguishes between these two classes of issues.

By default, the utility prints messages in human readable form. To print messages in machine parsable form, the –P option is used. For complete information on available options as well as command invocation and output, see the zonep2vchk (1M) man page.
