lx Branded Zone Configuration Process

The zonecfg command is used to:

  • Set the brand for the zone

  • Create the configuration for the lx zone

  • Verify the configuration to determine whether the specified resources and properties are legal and internally consistent on a hypothetical x86 or x64 based system

  • Perform a brand-specific verification. The verification ensures the following:

    • The zone cannot have any inherited package directories, ZFS datasets, or added devices.

    • If the zone is configured to use audio, the specified devices (if any) must be none, default, or a single digit.

The check performed by the zonecfg verify command for a given configuration verifies the following:

  • Ensures that a zone path is specified

  • Ensures that all of the required properties for each resource are specified

  • Ensures that brand requirements are met

For more information about the zonecfg command, see the zonecfg(1M) man page.
