Glenn writes, "Out of the many changes introduced in packaging with the Oracle Solaris 11.2 release, one of really good ones was the introduction of a repository mirroring service.

  • sczsmf: The orderly startup, shutdown and fault monitoring of an Oracle Solaris Service Management Facility (SMF) service within the Oracle Solaris zone managed by sczbt.

With Oralce Solaris Cluster 4.0 and 4.1 the sczbt component does support cold migration (boot and shutdown) of solaris and solaris10 branded zones..."
