How to Modify a Resource Type in a Zone Configuration

You can select a resource type and modify the specification for that resource.

You must be the global administrator in the global zone or a user with the correct rights profile to perform this procedure.

  1. Become an administrator.

    For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .

  2. Select the zone to be modified, my-zone in this procedure.
    global# zonecfg -z my-zone
  3. Select the resource type to be changed, for example, a resource control.
    zonecfg:my-zone> select rctl name=zone.cpu-shares
  4. Remove the current value.
    zonecfg:my-zone:rctl> remove value (priv=privileged,limit=20,action=none)
  5. Add the new value.
    zonecfg:my-zone:rctl> add value (priv=privileged,limit=10,action=none)
  6. End the revised rctl specification.
    zonecfg:my-zone:rctl> end
  7. Commit the zone configuration for the zone.
    zonecfg:my-zone> commit
  8. Exit the zonecfg command.
    zonecfg:my-zone> exit

    Note that even if you did not explicitly type commit at the prompt, a commit is automatically attempted when you type exit or an EOF occurs.

    Committed changes made through zonecfg take effect the next time the zone is booted.
