PHP Is any patch availabe for zone cloning?

Hello Guruz,

I am unable see the zone cloning option in zoneadm command, I guess the option if not available with the current OS release (Solaris 10 1/06).
Could some one let me know if there any specific patch is available for the same?.

My zoneadm o/p as follows.


usage: zoneadm help
zoneadm [-z <zone>] list
zoneadm -z <zone> <subcommand>


boot [-s]
list [-cipv]
uninstall [-F]

Thanks in advance

closing? Do you mean clone? If so, u3 probably has it.

Apologies it's cloning.

Is any specific patch need to be installed?

just try the latest patch cluster. it's most of the time a bad idea to only use one patch (dependencies...).

I am getting the clone as option in zoneadm and the package which is there in my system related to zones are

#pkginfo |grep zone
  application SUNWluzone                       Live Upgrade (zones support)
  system      SUNWzoner                        Solaris Zones (Root)
  system      SUNWzoneu                        Solaris Zones (Usr)

and the zoneadm

  usage:  zoneadm help
          zoneadm [-z <zone>] [-u <uuid-match>] list
          zoneadm {-z <zone>|-u <uuid-match>} <subcommand>
  boot [-- boot_arguments]
  reboot [-- boot_arguments]
  list [-cipv]
  install [brand-specific args]
  uninstall [-F]
  clone [-m method] zonename
  move zonepath
  detach [-n]
  attach [-F] [-n <path>]
  mark incomplete
