Overview

The Solaris(TM) 10 Containers Administration course provides a practical, hands-on, guided experience working with Sun's virtualization capabilities, collectively known as Solaris Containers. Solaris(TM) Zones and Solaris Resource Controls combine to create Solaris(TM) Containers. In this course you gain the knowledge critical to properly implement and manage these important capabilities in the Solaris Operating System. The hands-on labs offered in this course involve accessing equipment that resides at a location other than where the training is delivered.

This course is designed for students who can benefit from this course include system administrators who intend to implement Solaris Zones and Resource Controls on production systems, and individuals who support systems that are configured to use these Solaris capabilities.

Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:

  • Describe virtualization trends in the datacenter
  • Describe Solaris zones architecture and configure zones
  • Connect storage to zones
  • Manage packages and patches when zones are present
  • Configure persistent resource pools
  • Configure many zone resource management features
  • Perform zone advanced network management
  • Rename, move, clone and migrate Solaris zones
  • Backup and restore zones
  • Configure lx branded zones
