    Install zone using a flar archive on Solaris 10 11/06

    809910

      Hi

       

      We have two Solaris 10 11/06 SPARC servers. We decided to convert one physical system to a zone and install on another. I created the system image using the flarcreate command (flarcreate -S -n "Solaris 10 11/06 SPARC" -L cpio). Once the image was created, I copied it to another system, configured the new zone using zonecfg (create -b) and when I tried to install this image on the other system using zoneadm, it failed:

       

      # zoneadm -z s10-zone install -u -a /export/home/edb/solaris10-sparc-ufs.flar

      -u: illegal option -- u

      usage: install [brand-specific args]

        Install the configuration on to the system.  All arguments are passed to the brand installation function;

        see brand(4) for more information.

       

      # zoneadm -z s10-zone install -a /export/home/edb/solaris10-sparc-ufs.flar

      -a: illegal option -- a

      usage: install [brand-specific args]

        Install the configuration on to the system.  All arguments are passed to the brand installation function;

        see brand(4) for more information.

       

      Please help what is wrong. Is the patch 11/06 not supported to install the zone using flar? If not, then what are the other ways to do it?
