Zone Application Environment

The zoneadm command is used to create the zone application environment.

The internal configuration of the zone is specified by using the sysconfig interface. The internal configuration specifies a naming service to use, the default locale and time zone, the zone's root password, and other aspects of the application environment. The sysconfig interface is described in System Configuration Interactive Tool and the sysconfig(1M) man page. Note that the default locale and time zone for a zone can be configured independently of the global settings.
