You can perform a variety of management tasks on the Solaris zones, such as starting and stopping nonglobal zones.

To execute management tasks on a Solaris zone

  1. In the Servers folder, navigate to a Solaris global zone server and expand the Live node.
  2. Expand the Global Zone server object type and then expand the Non-global Zones node.
    This node shows all nonglobal zones configured within the global zone. The icons indicate the status of the nonglobal zones

    See Monitoring compliance in the virtual environment.

    Install

    Installs a nonglobal zone.

    Uninstall

    Uninstalls a zone.

    Halt

    Halts a zone.

    Reboot

    Halts and then boots a zone.

    Boot

    Places the zone in the running state. A zone can be booted from the ready state or from the installed state. Note that you must perform the internal zone configuration when you log on to the zone after booting it for the first time. This action should be performed using the zlogin -C command.

    Ready

    Prepares a nonglobal zone for running applications but does not start any user processes in the nonglobal zone.

    Incomplete

    Changes the state of an installed nonglobal zone to "incomplete". If administrative changes on the system have rendered a zone unusable or inconsistent, you can change the state of an installed zone to Incomplete.

    Note

    Marking a zone as Incomplete is an irreversible action. The only action that you can perform on a zone marked incomplete is to uninstall the zone and return it to the configured state.

    Delete

    Deletes the nonglobal zone.

    Properties

    Displays a read-only view of the non-global zone properties, such as path, zone status, resource pool, and so on.
