No. A VMWare guest image includes the complete machine state - including the entire kernel and userspace. When the machine is migrated, all of the state moves as a single unit. When migrating a zone, you would have to find some way to extricate the kernel state for just that some subset of a system's processes, devices, network connections, etc. - then insert that state into the middle of a kernel already running on another machine. To put it mildly, that would be hard. If you want live migration on Solaris, and you are using x86/x64 machines, then you should be looking at Xen. http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/xen Nils _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
