Configuring, Verifying, and Committing a Zone

    The zonecfg command described in the zonecfg(1M) man page is used to perform the following actions.

  • Create the zone configuration.

  • Verify that all required information is present.

  • Commit the non-global zone configuration.

The zonecfg command can also be used to persistently specify the resource management settings for the global zone.

While configuring a zone with the zonecfg utility, you can use the revert subcommand to undo the setting for a resource. See How to Revert a Zone Configuration.

To display a non-global zone's configuration, see How to Display the Configuration of a Non-Global Zone.
