    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).

    I'm not sure why Ur looking for /etc/system in zones..

    now in soalris 10u10 /soalrs 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

    zone.cpu-shares (preferred: cpu-shares)
    zone.max-lwps (preferred: max-lwps)
    zone.max-msg-ids (preferred: max-msg-ids)
    zone.max-sem-ids (preferred: max-sem-ids)
    zone.max-shm-ids (preferred: max-shm-ids)
    zone.max-shm-memory (preferred: max-shm-memory)
