Solaris Container Migration Made Easy

Migrating Solaris containers is one of the most exciting recent additions to the most recent Solaris 10 releases.  You can read about the feature here.  However, if you look at that article, you realize that there are a fair number of manual steps involved.  Fortunately, there's a better way to do this!

While I was in India this week, the Sun MC team gave me a demo of the latest additions to the Solaris Container Manager.  One of the major updates is support for Container migration.  Here's a screen shot (click to enlarge).

 

The great thing about this is that all those manual steps are totally automated for you.  Just click the Migrate Zone... button and supply a few parameters.  BANG!  You're done. It's almost instant.

Steve, the URL for the migration page has some extra cruft on the end, yielding a 'page not found' at sun.com.
