beadm Zones Support
Zones partitioning technology is used to virtualize operating system services and provide an
isolated and secure environment for running applications. Each OpenSolaris system is a global
zone. Within a global zone, specific non-global zones can be created.
For information about creating and administering non-global zones on your system, see the
zones section in the System Administration Guide: Virtualization Using the Solaris Operating System.
In the OpenSolaris 2008.11 release, the beadm utility introduces support for non-global zones.
