Configure an iSCSI LUN as a Native or Branded Zone Root Pool

Complete these steps to configure a volume (LUN) as a native or branded root zone. See Zone Brands for a description of the different zone types.

  • Indicate a dedicated zpool for the zone installation that is managed by the zones framework.

    Use the rootzpool property, as follows:

    root@opc-192-168-50-6:~# zonecfg -z testzone
    Use 'create' to begin configuring a new zone.       
    zonecfg:testzone> create
    create: Using system default template 'SYSdefault'
    zonecfg:testzone> add rootzpool
    zonecfg:testzone:rootzpool> set storage=iscsi://
    zonecfg:testzone:rootzpool> end  
    zonecfg:testzone> commit
    zonecfg:testzone> exit

    Note -  This value of the storage property must be set to point to the URI path for the iSCSI LUN discovered in Prepare a Volume for Use With Zones.
