About Branded Zones and the Linux Branded Zone

The branded zones facility in the SolarisTM Operating System is a simple extension of Solaris Zones. This chapter discusses the branded zones concept and the lx brand, which implements Linux branded zones functionality. Linux branded zones are also known as Solaris Containers for Linux Applications.

Note - Although you can configure and install branded zones on a Trusted SolarisTM system that has labels enabled, you cannot boot branded zones on this system configuration.
