1) Moves within the same platform: Are all zone moves between different
machine hardware classes considered to be supported? Is the move of a
zone from a 25k domain (sun4u) to a T2000 (sun4v) OK? If so, is it
equally OK to move a zone from a 25k domain to a FSC PrimePower system
(sun4us)?


The basic requirement for migrations of any sort is that both the
original and the new global zones must been running the same
packaging/patch levels for the OS.  Since sun4u and sun4v machines have
different contents for certain packages (for example, SUNWcar and
SUNWkvm), migration between a sun4u and a sun4v system may be
problematic although I'm not sure of "zoneadm attach" will detect this
discrepancy (it would need to compare the ARCH value of the package in
question).

2) Cross-platform moves: is there a way to move a zone from SPARC to
x86 or vice versa?

Not supported at the current time.
