Before planning and deploying a kernel zone, you must verify that the kernel zone host has the hardware and software requirements as described in Hardware and Software Requirements for Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones. You can use the virtinfo command to verify the hardware requirements, firmware or BIOS requirements, and kernel zone brand package software requirements on the kernel zone host.
For more information, see Using Your Assigned Administrative Rights in Securing Users and Processes in Oracle Solaris 11.2 .
# uname -a
For example, on the host global:
global# uname -a SunOS global 5.11 11.2 sun4v sparc sun4v
# pkg list brand/brand-solaris-kz
The following example shows that the kernel zone brand package is installed on the host global.
global# pkg list brand/brand-solaris-kz NAME (PUBLISHER) VERSION IFO system/zones/brand/brand-solaris-kz 0.5.11-0.175.2.0.0.36.22321 i--
The following example output shows that kernel zones are supported on the host global.
global# virtinfo NAME CLASS logical-domain current non-global-zone supported kernel-zone supported
