Hi Enda,the Solaris release is 8/07. What I really need is move the zone (doing like an ufsdump) and let it becaming a global zone and not a zone in a another system.
This is because we didn't have a new Sun blade so we created a zone in another machine then the oracle/application people could work in the meantime we order another system.
