          Sorta. In branded zones it does allow for the use of /etc/system and it reads that file to set process control settings. For unbranded zones, you must use /etc/project or prctl to modify settings within a zone (including zonecfg settings).

            now in soalris 10u10 /soalrs 11..you can configure the kernel parameters as application/user specific

            you can use projadd command to add the resources like shared memory

            if you want add the parameters as global you can use


            you can refer this doc what parameters u can add to zone with zonecfg
