If you use the Zone Manager, you can automate the zone creation,
zone configuration, networking and sshd configuration to enable
root (not recommending that) access over ssh in one CLI.
# zonemgr -a add -n MyHost -z /zones -P pw \
-C /etc/resolv.conf -C /etc/ssh/sshd_config \
-C "/etc/nsswitch.dns|/etc/nsswitch.conf" \
-s ssh -I "192.168.0.100|bfe0|24|myhost"
In this example, the Zone Manager does the following
* creates a zone called MyHost,
* puts the zone in /zones/MyHost,
* installs and configures the zone,
* sets the root user password to pw,
* adds an IP address,
* configures name resolution within the zone,
* copies a root login enabled sshd_config file
into the zone.
* restarts the ssh service to make sure the
new sshd configuration gets applied.
The Zone Manager (zonemgr) is free and available to
download at the following URL:
Hope that helps!
