18 Sep 2014 How-To: Creating Oracle Solaris 11 Zones [38355]
With Ops Center

Owen Allen writes, "If your environment uses Ops Center, you can use a profile to quickly create new zones with a specific setup. The profile specifies the OS version, zone configuration, storage, and file system for the zone. Once you've created a profile, it automatically generates a deployment plan, which you can run to create a new zone. At runtime you specify the target system, and the name, IP address, and network resources for the new zone, edit any of the info from the profile if you want, and schedule the zone creation.

We've put together a how-to that walks you through the whole process, so take a look..."

25 Aug 2014 Migratory Solaris Kernel Zones [38036]
By Jeff Victor

Jeff writes, "Oracle Solaris 11.2 introduced Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones. Kernel Zones (KZs) offer a midpoint between traditional operating system virtualization and virtual machines. They exhibit the low overhead and low management effort of Solaris Zones, and add the best parts of the independence of virtual machines.

A Kernel Zone is a type of Solaris Zone that runs its own Solaris kernel. This gives each Kernel Zone complete independence of software packages, as well as other benefits.

One of the more interesting new abilities that Kernel Zones bring to Solaris Zones is the ability to "pause" a running KZ and, "resume" it on a different computer - or the same computer, if you prefer.

Of what value is the ability to 'pause' a zone? ..."

23 Aug 2014 Virtual Box to VMware workstation [37919]
Migrating a VM

Lingeswaran writes, "This articles demonstrates that how we can migrate the virtual machine from Virtualbox to VMware workstation. Virtualbox can able to export the VM in OVA file format (Open Virtualization Archive) which can be easily imported in VMware workstation.

I have forced to install Oracle Solaris 11.2 on Virtual box and now I just want migrate the Solaris 11.2 VM to VMware workstation since Virtualbox is not supporting the Solaris kernel zones. There may be a chance that VM guest may not recognize the new virtual hardware after the migration and you need to perform the reconfiguration reboot for the VM..."

20 Aug 2014 Oracle Solaris 11.2's Virtual components [37918]
By Lingeswaran Rangasamy

Lingeswaran writes, "What are the virtual components available in Oracle Solaris 11.2? Since Oracle Solaris 11.2 supports openstack (for cloud deployment), what are the core components have been virtualized?

In this article, we will see the virtual components and how it will be useful in real life. For an example, if you want to provision 10 local zones with exclusive IP, you need 11 network interface cards on the system. (1 NIC for global zone). But normally, you won't get that many NIC on the physical server and also the cost matters. In this case, if you virtualize the network, you will get N-number of virtual NICS and you can create N-number of zones with exclusive IP setup..."

13 Aug 2014 Support for Kernel Zones with the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.2 Data Service for Oracle Solaris Zones [37797]
By T.F.

T.F. writes, "The Oracle Solaris Cluster Data Service for Oracle Solaris Zones is enhanced to support Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones (also called solaris-kz branded zones) with Oracle Solaris 11.2.

This data service provides high availability for Oracle Solaris Zones through three components in a failover or multi-master configuration:

  • sczbt: The orderly booting, shutdown and fault monitoring of an Oracle Solaris zone.
  • sczsh: The orderly startup, shutdown and fault monitoring of an application within the Oracle Solaris zone (managed by sczbt), using scripts or commands.
  • 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..."
