Unified Archives and Trusted Extensions

Solaris Unified Archives support archive creation and deployment of Trusted Extensions and 'labeled'-brand Solaris Zones. This support is transparent in most respects save the following caveats:

  • Archive image transforms are not allowed with Trusted Extensions or labeled zone archives. Therefore, Trusted Extensions global archives are deployable to global zone contexts such as logical domains, Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones, or to bare metal chines.

  • Archives of labeled non-global zone archives are only deployable as 'labeled'-brand zones, running within the context of a Trusted Extensions global zone Note the requirement for 'labeled'-brand non-global zone deployments.

  • Trusted Extensions must be configured in the global zone. For more information regarding Trusted Extensions and 'labeled'-brand zones, refer to Planning Your Labeled Zones in Trusted Extensions in Trusted Extensions Configuration and Administration.
