AI requires the configuration files of the non-global zones that you want to install on the client.
Zone configuration files are different from system configuration profiles that are typically used with AI. Zone configuration files contain information specific to their corresponding non-global zones. Therefore, you must create non-global zones first on a working system. Then you extract zone information into zone configuration files.
For instructions to create and configure non-global zones, see Chapter 5, Creating and Modifying a Non-Global Zone Configuration in Creating and Using Oracle Solaris Zones.
Instructions for the creation of zone configuration files for AI are described in How to Include a Non-Global Zone in an Automatic Installation.
