       brands - alternate operating environments for non-global zones

       The  branded zone (BrandZ) framework extends the Solaris Zones infrastructure described in
       zones(5) to include the creation of brands, which provide non-global  zones  that  contain
       non-native operating environments.

       The term "brand" can refer to a wide range of operating environments. All brand management
       is performed as extensions to the current zones structure.

       Every zone is configured with an associated brand. The brand type  is  used  to	determine
       which  scripts  are  executed  when  a zone is installed and booted. In addition, a zone's
       brand is used to properly identify the correct  application  type  at  application  launch
       time. The default is the native brand.

       A  branded  zone  will  support exactly one brand of non-native binary, which means that a
       branded zone provides a single operating environment. Once a  zone  has	been  assigned	a
       brand, that brand cannot be changed or removed.

       BrandZ extends the zones tools in the following ways:

	   o	  A brand is an attribute of a zone, set at zone create time.

	   o	  The  zonecfg tool (see zonecfg(1M)) is used to set a zone's brand type and con-
		  figure the zone.

	   o	  The zoneadm tool (see zoneadm(1M)) is used to report a zone's  brand	type  and
		  administer the zone.

   Device Support
       The devices supported by each zone are documented in the man pages and other documentation
       for that brand. The zones infrastructure detects any attempt to add an unsupported  device
       and  issues  a warning to the administrator. If the administrator chooses to add an unsup-
       ported device despite that warning, that device might or might not work as  expected.  The
       configuration will be untested and unsupported.

       See attributes(5) for a description of the following attributes:
