How to Modify a Resource Type in a Zone Configuration

You can select a resource type and modify the specification for that resource.

  1. Become a zone administrator.

    For more information, see Assigning Limited Rights to Zone Administrators.

  2. Select the zone to be modified, my-zone in this procedure.
    global$ zonecfg -z my-zone
  3. Select the resource type to be changed, for example, a resource control.
    zonecfg:my-zone> select rctl name=zone.cpu-shares
  4. Remove the current value.
    zonecfg:my-zone:rctl> remove value (priv=privileged,limit=20,action=none)
  5. Add the new value.
    zonecfg:my-zone:rctl> add value (priv=privileged,limit=10,action=none)
  6. End the revised rctl specification.
    zonecfg:my-zone:rctl> end
  7. Commit the zone configuration for the zone.
    zonecfg:my-zone> commit
  8. Exit the zonecfg command.
    zonecfg:my-zone> exit

    Note that even if you did not explicitly type commit at the prompt, a commit is automatically attempted when you type exit or an EOF occurs.

    Committed changes made through zonecfg take effect the next time the zone is booted.
