ZONEADMD(1M) Maintenance Commands ZONEADMD(1M)

zoneadmd - zone administration daemon


zoneadmd is a system daemon that is started when the system needs to manage a particular zone. Because each instance of the zoneadmd daemon manages a particular zone, it is not unexpected to see multiple zoneadmd daemons running.

This daemon is started automatically by the zone management software and should not be invoked directly. The daemon shuts down automatically when no longer in use. It does not constitute a programming interface, but is classified as a private interface.
