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 Assigning Rights to Non-Root Users to Manage Zones in Creating and Using Oracle Solaris Zones.

  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
