Image sysidcfg Status

The –c can be used to pass a sysidcfg file to use in configuring the zone after the installation completes.

If you created an Oracle Solaris 10 system archive from an existing system and use the –p (preserve sysidcfg) option when you install the zone, then the zone will have the same identity as the system used to create the image.

If you use the –u (sys-unconfig) and –coptions when you install the target zone, the zone produced will not have a hostname or name service configured.
