Moving solaris zones between different global zones (hosts)

Suppose you have a Solaris zone (ZONENAME) on one host and want to move it on other global zone.

On first server:

1. zoneadm -z ZONENAME halt
2. zoneadm -z ZONENAME detach
4. tar -cf ../zonename.tar .
5. scp ../zonename.tar user@server2:/$ZONEPATH

On the second server:

1. mkdir $ZONEHOME
3. tar -xf ../zonename.tar .
4. zonecfg -z ZONENAME
>create -a $ZONEHOME
5. zoneadm -z ZONENAME attach
6. zoneadm -z ZONENAME boot

You’re good to go :)
