I think Andrew was looking for how to upgrade the Solaris 8 system AFTER it had migrated to a container as you describe. As far as I'm aware there's nothing that can currently do this. In the future you'll be able to live upgrade the physical system to Solaris 10 and then use the Native Zone p2v process to migrate it to a solaris 10 container. Unfortunatley though, I've not noticed any talk of providing a Solaris 8/9 branded zone after the upgrade to a Native Solaris 10 zone.

Just take the Solaris 8 container documentation and follow the steps. http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/prod/solaris.8.con1?l=en&a=view You have to download a "S8 container" kit. Depending on which release of Solaris 10 you're running, you may have to reboot your global zone to activate this brandz type of zone. Remember that you can't expect support from SUn support channel without buying a particular contract. And be careful ! It works like a charm...it's pretty amazing as too many companies claims that their "virtual blabla" let IT departments virtualize anything, anywhere. In the real world ? Ah ah ! It's a really another story. Solaris containers...taste it, love it, and come back to the best OS ! :) Nico _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
