I'm new to kernel zones. I have created several uar files using archiveadm containing Sol11.3 server images. These were running LDOMs at one time. I was hoping to use "zoneadm install" to create Sol11 kernel zones from these UAR files. However, I've hit a roadblock. The images were created without any "AI Media" value. Is there a way for me to specify the "AI Media" during zone install time after the UAR file has been created?

To install a Kernel Zone with a version of Solaris other than that installed on the host, you will need to perform a media install (i.e. provide an ISO for the desired version).
Direct install only supports installing the exact same version as that running in 11.4 the host.
