I have been asked to create a zone on a shared LUN which will enable us
to detach and attach the zone onto another system (exactly same hardware
So I have create a ZFS Pool and specified the zonepath to be on root
filesystem of that pool
zfs create -m /zones/webzone webpool <san_disk>
The above creates a ZFS pool called "webpool" and mounts to /zones/webzone.
I have then in zonecfg specified the following
zonecfg:webzone> # zonecfg -z webzone
webzone: No such zone configured
Use 'create' to begin configuring a new zone.
zonecfg:webzone> set zonepath=/zones/webpool
zonecfg:webzone> set ip-type=exclusive
Upon a need to detach, I will shutdown the zone and detach as follows ..
# zoneadm -z appzone detach
And then deport the ZFS Pool webpool
#zpool deport webpool
On the other system, I would then
#zpool import webpool
And start the Zone (assuming of course the zone XML file has already
been imported and created on the 2nd node).
Is the above the best way to do things?
