I need to test and learn solaris Branded Zone process. Does anyone has idea, whether it is possible to install and configure branded zone software and create zones in a solaris 10 VM running on ESX 3.01 host? Is that doable?
I studied Solaris Zones in VMware VM. I used ESX3.5 so can't say anything about 3.01, but I suppose Solaris Zones will work.
VMware vExpert '2009
according to the compatibility list for OSs (http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?deviceCategory=software)
ESX 3.0.1 supports solaris 10
just look for the right versions of Solaris 10
Sure, I will do the awarding.
Is the way to award point to click the "Helpful Answer" and "Correct Answer" at the left? I am wondering if there is anything will show up once I click it?
I tried install the solaris 9 container on solaris 10 U5. It seems not working. I will try U7 version later. However, I want to first check other issue it may have.
1) The package downloaded was from URL:
The link is: s9containers-bundle-solaris10-sparc.tar.gz
That is the package for SPARC. There is no x86 version of Solaris 9 container. Does anyone has idea if the SPARC version of container will work on x86 Solaris 10 VM?
2) When I unzip/untar this package,all file in this package seems to be very small. I doubt whether it has everything it should have. Even its size is 41MB.
dis you finally succed ?
I'm also interested in playing with solaris 10 zones and containers inside an ESX 3.5 virtual machine.
Please let me know any tips etc as I'm also a very beginner in that topic ( solaris zones, containers etc )
