Creating the Image for Directly Migrating Oracle Solaris 10 Systems Into Zones

You can use the Oracle Solaris Flash archiving tools to create an image of an installed system that can be migrated into a zone.

Note -  Oracle Solaris Flash archiving tools are supported only with solaris10 branded zones. As of Oracle Solaris 11.2, Unified Archives are the only supported archiving file type for solaris and solaris-kz branded zones. See Chapter 7, Migrating and Converting Oracle Solaris Zones in Creating and Using Oracle Solaris Zones and Using Unified Archives for System Recovery and Cloning in Oracle Solaris 11.3 for information on working with Unified Archives.

The system can be fully configured with all of the software that will be run in the zone before the image is created. This image is then used by the installer when the zone is installed.
