How to Use zlogin to Shut Down a Zone

Note - Running init 0 in the global zone to cleanly shut down a Oracle Solaris system also runs init 0 in each of the non-global zones on the system. Note that init 0 does not warn local and remote users to log off before the system is taken down.

Use this procedure to cleanly shut down a zone. To halt a zone without running shutdown scripts, see How to Halt a 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. Log in to the zone to be shut down, for example, my-zone, and specify shutdown as the name of the utility and init 0 as the state.
    global# zlogin my-zone shutdown -i 0

    Your site might have its own shutdown script, tailored for your specific environment.
