This procedure is used to move the zone to a new location on the same system by changing the zonepath. The zone must be halted. The normal zonepath criteria described in Resource Types and Properties in Oracle Solaris Zones Configuration Resources apply.
This information also applies to moving solaris10 branded zones. For information on solaris10 branded zones, see Creating and Using Oracle Solaris 10 Zones.
The zone is present in other BEs. You can either delete those BEs first, or create a new zone at the new path by cloning the zone.
The zone is on shared storage with a rootzpool resource to a different location on the system. A rename of the zonepath is supported.
For more information, see Assigning Limited Rights to Zone Administrators.
