Determine the Zone Host Name and the Network Requirements

You must determine the host name for the zone.

Inside an exclusive-IP zone, you configure addresses as you do for the global zone.

For a shared-IP zone that will have network connectivity, you must do one of the following:

  • Assign an IPv4 address for the zone

  • Manually configure and assign an IPv6 address for the zone
