It might go into too much detail, but take a look at
The basic process is
1. Create a zone configuration for you new non-global zone.
# zonecfg -z newzone create -t oldzone
and then go back in with zonecfg and change things like
IP address, zonepath, filesystems and devices.
To change the IP address, try something like
# zonecfg -z newzone
select net physical=e1000g0
This will change the IP address on e1000g0. Change the
nic and IP address as necessary.
2. Clone the zone
# zoneadm -z oldzone halt
# zoneadm -z newzone clone oldzone
3. Detach the new zone
# zoneadm -z newzone detach
4. Copy the new zone to a new server
# scp -r newzonepath [EMAIL PROTECTED]:newzonepath
5. Attach the new zone to the new server.
# (on new server) zonecfg -z newzone create -a newzonepath
# zoneadm -z newzone attach
6. Supply a sysidcfg for the new zone (optional, but cool!)
Things like local loopback filesystem mounts can cause some difficulty.
