Add Zone Function to Solaris 10 Core build

These are my notes on adding the zone functionality to Solaris. Solaris 10 comes with six Software Groups. The Software Groups are, from lowest to highest, Reduced network Support, Core System Support, End User, Developer, Entire and Entire Plus OEM.

I installed Solaris 10 at the Core level. When I tried to install a zone it couldn't find the zonecfg command. This is because the packages needed to support zones are not install at this level. Below are the packages I install to in order to get zone functionality on my Solaris 10 server.

SUNWzoneu
SUNWzoner
SUNWpoolr
SUNWluzone
SUNWluu
SUNWlur
SUNWlucfg
