Because this topic has come up multiple times in the past year, I added CR 6562762 as an RFE:

"Hot" Zone migration: move a running zone from one Solaris system to another.

Hi Andrew - we don't have plans for vmotion like functionality, as a zone is tightly locked to the running kernel. Vmotion moves the entire kernel over, as you well know. Vmotion like functionality is on the roadmap for LDOMs, which will migrate an entire running instance of the OS.

I'm reactivating this thread again, as AIX 6.1 will provide this functionality with WPARs.
I guess we should discuss it, if this feature would make sense for Solaris
