How to Use Failsafe Mode to Enter a Zone

When a connection to the zone is denied, the zlogin command can be used with the –S option to enter a minimal environment in the zone.

You must be the global administrator or a user with appropriate authorizations in the global zone 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. From the global zone, use the zlogin command with the –S option to access the zone, for example, my-zone.
    global# zlogin -S my-zone
