Migration and Zone Conversion Requirements For solaris Branded Zones

Both zone migration and zone conversion on solaris branded zones have the following requirements:

  • The global zone on the target system must be running an Oracle Solaris 11 release that is equal to or higher than that on the original source host.

  • To ensure that the zone will run properly, the target system must have the same or later versions of the required operating system packages as those installed on the original source host.

    Other packages, such as those for third-party products, can be different.

Note -  solaris10 branded zones and solaris-kz branded zones have additional brand-specific requirements for zone conversion and zone migration. For solaris10 branded zones, see Chapter 2, Assessing an Oracle Solaris 10 System and Creating an Archive in Creating and Using Oracle Solaris 10 Zones. For solaris-kz branded zones, see Creating and Using Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones.
