File Systems and Non-Global Zones

This section provides information about file system issues on an Oracle Solaris system with zones installed. Each zone has its own section of the file system hierarchy, rooted at a directory known as the zone root. Processes in the zone can access only files in the part of the hierarchy that is located under the zone root. The chroot utility can be used in a zone, but only to restrict the process to a root path within the zone. For more information about chroot, see chroot(1M).
