Hi. I'd like to create a NGZ on a S10U6 system. Actually, I'd like to create a number of NGZ's on this host and the NGZs don't differ much. So I thought that it should be possible to create a "template" NGZ where the zone root is on a ZFS.
Then I think it should somehow be possible to use ZFS snapshots and clones. Ie. a snapshot of the zone root should be created, it should be promoted to a clone and this clone should be used as the zone root for a new NGZ. When first booting, I'd run a sys-unconfig, reboot again and enter valid data (or modify the files touched by sys-unconfig myself and safe me one boot). Afterwards, the zone XML file in /etc would need to be modified to "cheat" the system into thinking that this new NGZ is properly configured. Or does zoneadm maybe support this from itself? If so, what would be the correct way of using zoneadm? Is the manpage at http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/816-5166/zoneadm-1m?l=de&a=view the current man page (or at least the one that is valid for S10U6)? And if that's so, would the following be the correct way of doing things? # zoneadm -z template-zone halt # zfs snapshot zones/templ...@2008-12-13 # zoneadm -z target clone -s zones/templ...@2008-12-13 template-zone Would that be correct? Thanks a lot, Alexander
