Yes, you can clone a Solaris 10 zone running on Solaris 11. The only difference in the way it works is that you provide it a sysidcfg file to be applied after unconfiguration of the cloned zone. Look at solaris10(5) manual page for details. This probably should be covered in the product docs, so will ping our docs team.
Do I need to apply the sysidcfg or just manually edit this file in the cloned zone. The difference would be in ip_address and hostname only. Rest of the values will remain same.
I would apply the sysidcfg file when you do the clone using the '-c sysidcfg' option.
Is having the sysidcfg file mandatory for Branded zones? I think, I have never used them in the Sparse Zones. I had different files for configuration like /etc/defaultrouter, /etc/hosts, etc.. I guess in Branded zones, you do not need to have these files present or configured.. just have sysidcfg file, right? Or?
