Solaris 10: Connect or Login to Zone Console
Once you have a non-global zone installed or running on a Solaris 10 installation, connecting to the console of the zone is often useful. This provides the same control over the zone as connecting to the console of a physical server running Solaris.
To connect to the console of a Solaris 10 zone called testzone, use the following command as root or the equivalent on the global zone:
zlogin -C testzone
The -C option specifies a console login. The console login will persist when the zone is rebooted.
To exit zlogin, use the escape sequence ~. on a new line. (The tilde must follow a carriage return, not any other character.) If this escape character is inappropriate (because you are connected using software like tip that also uses this escape sequence), you can specify a different escape character on the command line. For example, to use the @ symbol, use the following:
zlogin -C -e @ testzone
In this case, to exit the zlogin console session, type @. on a new line.
