How to Use zlogin to Shut Down a Zone

Note -  Running init 0 in the global zone to cleanly shut down a Oracle Solaris system also runs init 0 in each of the non-global zones on the system. Note that init 0 does not warn local and remote users to log off before the system is taken down.

Use this procedure to cleanly shut down a zone. To halt a zone without running shutdown scripts, see How to Halt a Zone.

  1. Become a zone administrator.

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

  2. Log in to the zone to be shut down, for example, my-zone, and specify shutdown as the name of the utility and init 0 as the state.
    global$ zlogin my-zone shutdown -i 0

    Your site might have its own shutdown script, tailored for your specific environment.
