You have many questions about Solaris ldom and zones are still "open", would you mind to close them before moving on to similar questions?

This question is not clear to me, what did you want to do and what is your current situation?

That one was general question and this is specific regrading p2v. I mean i need to move physical server to containers(zone). Is there a method or tools I can use?

There is no such tool like p2v in VMware in Solaris. Only thing you could do is creat a zone inside a Solaris 10 server, then install Solaris 8 OS into the zone.

P2V is supported as of Solaris 10 update 9...  so basically in your case (solaris 8) no go... unless you want to upgrade to solaris 10 update 9 first and then do a P2V.

To me it sounds like old hardware you want to get rid of the easy way...

Best Regards,
