This paper is intended to show a new user the capabilities of the Oracle Solaris ZFS File System when coupled with Oracle Solaris Containers. It describes the assignment of an Oracle Solaris ZFS file system to a zone, and some of the administrative tasks possible in such a configuration. Assigning a file system to a zone gives a zone administrator full delegated control of the Oracle Solaris ZFS file system, enabling them to take snapshots, create sub file systems and perform other tasks without requiring the global zone administrator's intervention.
