So, basically I want to copy the zone and not move the zone. And the zone has UFS and not ZFS filesystem.

Can I follow the steps mentioned in the pdf? Can I attach the zone after detaching to take the backup?

Please help here.

Thank you guys. But, I do not want to move the zone. I want to copy it to other machine and give a different IP to this new zone. So, basically I want two zones up and running. Since I have configured lot of third party libraries on zone1, I do not want to create the second zone and do all those configurations again. Hence, want cop make a copy of that zone. I hope you got my requirement. Moreover, I do not use ZFS.

Sandeep.

Hi,
I'm using Solaris 10 sparc machine and created a whole root zone. Now, I want to copy this zone to some other Sparc server and restore there. Hence, I followed these steps:

1. Take Backup of zone:
Login to Sparc server1.
# zlogin -s myzone halt
# ufsdump 0f /export/home/backup_zones/myzone.ufsdump /export/home/zones/myzone

2. Restore the dump:
Login to Sparc server2.
# /export/home
#  ufsrestore rf myzone.ufsdump
