Oracle Solaris 10 Zones

Oracle Solaris 10 Zones are solaris10 branded zones that host x86 and SPARC Solaris 10 9/10 (or later released Oracle Solaris 10 update) user environments running on the Oracle Solaris 11 kernel. Note that it is possible to use an earlier Oracle Solaris 10 release if you first install the kernel patch 142909-17 (SPARC) or 142910-17 (x86/x64), or later version, on the original system.

For information about SVR4 packaging and patching used in solaris10 and native zones, see "Chapter 25, About Packages on an Solaris System With Zones Installed (Overview)" and "Chapter 26, Adding and Removing Packages and Patches on a Solaris System With Zones Installed (Tasks)" in the Oracle Solaris 10 guide System Administration Guide: Oracle Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Oracle Solaris Zones.
