I have not seen any official support of oracle 11gr2x in solaris 11 express yet
so most likely the installation is on s10 I would add the following:on the same host of s10 create full root zone, so you will have the same os and patch level of the GZ. if you also inherit the oracle home then NGZ will get the same copy of the oracle installation
you would then work out procedure to migration the db data from GZ to NGZ

Be sure to check with the database folks to ensure that you remain in a supported configuration. If you aren't able to move to Solaris 11 Express (even with Solaris 10 Containers), the process for migrating will be highly dependent on your configuration. The last time I read the oracle database installation instructions (several years ago) the recommendation was to have separate file systems for the oracle executables (e.g. /u01) and others for database files, indexes, etc. (e.g. /u02, /u03, ... or /<sid>/u01, /<sid>/u02, ...) If this is the case, then you likely need to do something along the lines of the following. This an off the cuff description of the process that is generic and almost certainly misses things that exist in your configuration. Test it on non-production machines first and consult with DBAs and Oracle Solaris and database support as needed. 1) Configure the zone with zonecfg. You will most likely need to set various resource controls ("add rctl" in zonecfg) for shared memory, etc. I suspect that current Oracle DB installation docs will describe what needs to be set. 2) Install the zone with zoneadm install. 3) Boot the zone and do any configuration needed. For example, add users and groups needed. 4) Shut down the database 5) Remove (or comment) the /etc/vfstab entries corresponding to the oracle databases and binaries from the global zone 6) Add "fs" entries to the zone's configuration (with zonecfg) corresponding to the entries removed from the global zone's /etc/vfstab. 7) Reboot the zone 8) Start the database in the zone.
