While you didn't specify a release of Solaris, I am assuming that you are working with Solaris 10. The instructions for this are at: http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/817-1592/gcgnc?l=en&a=view The instructions provided there are rather generic but are likely workable for your situation, assuming that the data served from the SAN is application data and not OS data. A step that is not mentioned is how to configure the storage devices and/or SAN fabric to allow the other host to see the disks. Zones likely do not add any complexity to that task - it should be just a migration of storage from one machine to the next when zones are not involved. If the zonepath is on the SAN, the "move the zonepath for my-zone to the new host" step is unlikely to involve tar or sftp. Rather, the steps will be along of shutting down the zone, detaching it, doing implementation-specific SAN-based storage migration tasks, attaching it, then booting it. Without knowing specifics about what storage is on the SAN vs. on local disk, it is hard to tell if there is anything especially tricky that you need to deal with. -- Mike Gerdts http://mgerdts.blogspot.com/ _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
