Before you can install a kernel zone, you must configure it as described in Planning and Configuring Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones. After configuration, you install a kernel zone by using the zoneadm install command.
You can install a kernel zone through one of the following methods:
A kernel zone direct installation. See Installing a Kernel Zone by Using Direct Installation.
An Automated Installation (AI) manifest or an Oracle Solaris system configuration (sysconfig) profile. See Using AI Manifests and sysconfig Profiles in Kernel Zone Installations.
Oracle Solaris installation image. See Installing a Kernel Zone from an Installation Image.
You can also clone a kernel zone that has already been installed. See Cloning a Kernel Zone.
