Moving Existing Zones To or From Shared Storage Zone Configurations

You can move an existing file system-based zone installation to a shared storage-based zone configuration. You can also move an installed zone from shared storage resources to a file system configuration.

Note -  Because this process involves moving a zone installation across storages, these actions are possible only on zones in the installed state.

In Oracle Solaris 11.4, the zonepath for zones that contain a rootzpool resource cannot be changed. See the solaris(7) man page for the specific defaults that the solaris brand supports.

To move a zone that is not going to or from shared storage, go to How to Move a Zone That Is Not on Shared Storage.
