Kernel Zone Migration Requirements

Kernel zones share the same requirements for zone migration as other zone brands. These requirements are detailed in Chapter 7, Migrating and Converting Oracle Solaris Zones in Creating and Using Oracle Solaris Zones.

Note -  Migrating a zone between SPARC and x86 architectures is not supported.

In addition, both the source and target hosts must have support for Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones. Refer to Hardware and Software Requirements for Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones.

Note -  Kernel zone live migration has specific system firmware and storage requirements. See Live Migration Requirements for details.
