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 
too...

Although the general concept is straightforward, what are the most significant criteria? Understanding the needs would help scope out a project like this.

I think that the ultimate goal is to move a service from one physical computer to another without dropping any client connections or transaction state.

What's missing from that goal?
