About Live Zone Reconfiguration

    Use Live Zone Reconfiguration to do the following tasks:

  • Report on and inspect the current live zone configuration

  • Make changes to the live zone configuration

  • Apply changes to the live zone configuration

Changes can be made either on a temporary or on a persistent basis. The standard tools zonecfg and zoneadm are used to administer Live Zone Reconfiguration. Temporary changes are active until the next reboot. You do not need to reboot for changes to be applied to the persistent configuration.

    There is no downtime in service availability within the zone when the following configuration changes are made:

  • Changing resource controls

  • Changing network configuration

  • Changing the CPU resource pool

  • Adding or removing file systems

  • Adding or removing virtual and physical devices
