Can I upgrade from a FreeBSD or BSD/OS Virtual Server to a Solaris Virtual Server?
Yes, you can upgrade; however, the process is not automatic. In order
to upgrade, you will have to order a Solaris Virtual Server, transfer
your content, files, configurations, etc., move your domain name, and
then terminate your existing Virtual Server.
In the near future, we will have a 'Shadow' process much like the one we
currently use for migrating from BSD/OS to FreeBSD.

to the Solaris Virtual Servers. The Server Administrator is responsible
