How to Use Interactive Mode to Access a Zone

In interactive mode, a new pseudo-terminal is allocated for use inside the zone.

  1. Become a zone administrator.

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

  2. From the global zone, log in to the zone, for example, my-zone.
    global$ zlogin my-zone

    Information similar to the following will display:

    [Connected to zone 'my-zone' pts/2]
    Last login: Wed Jul  3 16:25:00 on console
  3. Type exit to close the connection.

    You will see a message similar to the following:

    [Connection to zone 'my-zone' pts/2 closed]
