solaris-oci - solaris-oci branded zone


The solaris-oci brand uses the branded zones framework described in brands to run Oracle Solaris images with the same software as is installed in the global zone. For more information, see the brands(7) man page.

The solaris-oci brand instance expects that a consumer has configured the Oracle Solaris image and that all the system software is always in sync with the global zone.
