Creating and Using Oracle® Solaris 10 Zones

Exit Print View

Updated: October 2017

Source and Target System Prerequisites

Enabling Oracle Solaris 10 Package and Patch Tools

    To use the Oracle Solaris 10 package and patch tools in Oracle Solaris 10 Zones, install the following patches for your architecture on your source system before the image is created.

  • 119254-75, 119534-24, and 140914-02 (SPARC)

  • 119255-75, 119535-24 and 140915-02 (x86/x64)

The P2V process will work without the patches, but the package and patch tools will not work properly within the solaris10 branded zone.

Installing the Required Oracle Solaris Package on the Target System

To use Oracle Solaris 10 Zones on your system, pkg:/system/zones/brand/brand-solaris10 must be installed on the system running Oracle Solaris 11.
