Booting a zone places the zone in the running state. A zone can be booted from the ready state or from the installed state. A zone in the installed state that is booted transparently transitions through the ready state to the running state. Zone login is allowed for zones in the running state.
You must be the global administrator or a user with appropriate authorizations in the global zone to perform this procedure.
For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .
global# zoneadm -z my-zone boot
global# zoneadm list -v
You will see a display that is similar to the following:
ID NAME STATUS PATH BRAND IP 0 global running / solaris shared 1 my-zone running /zones/my-zone solaris excl
global# zoneadm -z my-zone boot -- -m verbose

global# zoneadm -z my-zone reboot -- -m verbose
Zone administrator reboot of the zone my-zone, using the –m verbose option:
