14.8.6 Range of Verified Boot Support
Verified Boot on Guest Domains and Kernel Zones
Verified boot is supported only for global zones in Oracle Solaris 11.2. In addition to this, verified boot is supported for kernel zones in Oracle Solaris 11.3 or later. For details on configuring verified boot in kernel zones, see Creating and Using Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones. For details on configuring verified boot in guest domains, see "Using Verified Boot" in the Oracle VM Server for SPARC 3.4 Administration Guide.
Boot Device and Verified Boot Policy Settings
The verified boot supports booting from a hard disk drive (HDD) and booting from the network. For other boot methods, set the verified boot policy to "none."
Also, when performing verified boot, be sure to perform boot from a signed device. Otherwise, boot verification by verified boot fails.
Table 14-21 shows the range of verified boot support.
