How to Log In to the Zone Console

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. Use the zlogin command with the –C option, the –d option and the name of the zone, for example, my-zone.
    global# zlogin -C -d my-zone

    Using the zlogin command with the –C option starts the SCI Tool if the configuration has not been performed.

  3. When the zone console displays, log in as root, press Return, and type the root password when prompted.
