8.2 Configuring the Oracle Solaris Kernel Zone


8.2 Configuring the Oracle Solaris Kernel Zone
Oracle Solaris kernel zone is a function provided with Oracle Solaris 11.2 and later. A zone can run as an operating system (OS) independent from a global zone. Oracle Solaris kernel zone is different from a non-global zone and operates by individual kernels that do not rely on a global zone. This enhances the independence of the operating system and applications, and enhances security.
For details of the procedure for configuring Oracle Solaris kernel zone, see Creating and Using Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones of the version used. In addition, for known problems on kernel zones, see "Kernel Zone Issues" in Oracle Solaris Release Notes of the version used.
