Hi there, I am pretty new to Solaris and zones, so please excuse me if it's an FAQ, I do appreciate your patience and assistance, with much detail as possible.
I have a need to create multiple zones on a Solaris server machine. I am thinking of whole root zones Looking at the zone admin docs, I am still not quite clear on how I should set the "net" properties ('physical' and 'address'). 'ifconfig -a' gives me the following info: # ifconfig -a lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu 8232 index 1 inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000 e1000g0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2 inet 10.5.8.193 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 10.5.8.255 ether 0:14:4f:45:62:a I think creating the zones on the private network would be easier, meaning, the zones can have no network access to outside, only access from the the global zone and no access from other machines. Or am I wrong? Otherwise, I assuem I have to get IP addresses and the zone names pushed into the central YP server or something by our System Admin. Either way, if I need to creat 3 zones on this server, what is the detailed procedure? Here is what I think I need to do: ################# # zonecfg -z myzone1 myzone1: No such zone configured Use 'create' to begin configuring a new zone. zonecfg:myzone1> create zonecfg:myzone1> set zonepath=/export/zones/myzone1 zonecfg:myzone1> set autoboot=true zonecfg:myzone1> add fs zonecfg:myzone1:fs> set dir=/export/share zonecfg:myzone1:fs> set special=/export/share zonecfg:myzone1:fs> set type=lofs zonecfg:myzone1:fs> end zonecfg:myzone1> add net zonecfg:myzone1:net> set address=?????? zonecfg:myzone1:net> set physical=????? : : : so what are the values I need to use for "address" and "physical" and I how can I figure out? If you can give me as much detail as posisble, that'd help. AS I said, I am not very familiar with Solaris system admin stuff, but I'd love to learn. Thanks.
