If a config.xml file was passed to the zoneadm clone, attach, or install commands, this configuration file is used to configure the system. If no config.xml file was provided during the clone, attach, or install operation, then the first boot of the zone will start the SCI Tool on the console.
To avoid missing the initial prompt for configuration information, it is recommended that two terminal windows be used, so that zlogin is running before the zone is booted in a second session.
For more information, see Assigning Limited Rights to Zone Administrators.
global$ zlogin -C my-zone
global$ zoneadm -z my-zone boot
You will see a display similar to the following in the zlogin terminal window:
[NOTICE: Zone booting up]
Parameters include system host name, time zone, user and root accounts, and name services. By default, the SCI Tool produces an SMF profile file in /system/volatile/scit_profile.xml.
If the initial SCI screen doesn't appear, you can type Ctrl L to refresh the SCI screen.
