The kernel zone boot loader manages booting operations on the kernel zone. To invoke the boot loader, the kernel zone must be in the ready or installed state. You can use the kernel zone boot loader to perform the following operations:
List available boot environments
Boot the zone to an alternate boot environment
Use the zoneadm boot command to invoke the kernel zone boot loader. You must also invoke the zone console when you invoke the kernel zone boot loader. The boot loader output will appear in the zone console.
For information about creating and managing boot environments on the operating system level, see Chapter 1, Introduction to Managing Boot Environments, in Creating and Administering Oracle Solaris 11.2 Boot Environments . Additional information for managing zones and boot environments is available in Chapter 2, beadm Zones Support, in Creating and Administering Oracle Solaris 11.2 Boot Environments .
