This article discusses the difference between running BoKS in Solaris Zones, and in Solaris Kernel Zones, available in Oracle Solaris version 11.2 and later.

Reference Information

BoKS Manager can be installed and run in Solaris Kernel Zones without any of the restrictions that exist for running BoKS in Solaris Zones.

In Solaris Zones, a number of restrictions apply, for example BoKS must be installed and set up in the global zone before it is installed in any non-global zone.

For a full list of restrictions, see the section "Installation Requirements in a Solaris Zones Environment" in the BoKS Manager Installation Guide.
