Using the zlogin Command for File Editing or Adding Packages

The zlogin command provides two options for actions such as editing an immutable file or adding a new package. Use of these options require the authorization


Enter an Immutable Zone with the Trusted Path attribute PRIV_PROC_TPD set. This session can modify files in the zone that are normally immutable. The session cannot read unprotected files.


Perform the same process as the –T option, but in unsafe mode. This option is required for zones with the flexible-configuration of the file-mac-profile property.

Note -  These options cannot be used with console login. Both options are ignored for zones that are not Immutable Zones.
