How to Boot the solaris10 Branded Zone

You must be the global administrator or a user with the 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 zoneadm command with the –z option, the name of the zone, which is s10-zone, and the boot subcommand to boot the zone.
    global# zoneadm -z s10-zone boot
  3. When the boot completes, use the list subcommand with the –v option to verify the status.
    global# zoneadm list -v

    You will see a display that is similar to the following:

    ID  NAME     STATUS       PATH                           BRAND      IP
     0  global   running     /                               solaris     shared
     1  s10-zone running     /zone/s10-zone                  solaris10   shared
