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.
OpenVZ (similar to zones, from my understanding) can do this on Linux. http://wiki.openvz.org/Checkpointing_and_live_migration http://openvz.org/news/announcements/openvz-sparc-20070102
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
Does running on sun4v LDOMs help provide a path to this? To someone that hasn't really looked at how LDOMs get their initial state, it seems as though this would be quite doable.
