Unfortunately I am running into bug 6912829 ( causes panic on zoneadm halt ) 
quite often.
   


Do or don't zones work correctly on OpenSolaris-b131?

if you are using exclusive IP stack zones I'd suggest staying away from build 
131
and waht for build 132 which has the fixes for:

6912829 panic in ipsq_xopq_mp_cleanup/RD due to NULL ill-ill_wq on lo0 during 
zone shutdown/reboot
6917808 Panic on exclusive IP zone shutdown in ipsq_current_finish
6917809 Exclusive IP zone shutdown causes assertion failure in ire_inactive

so far to my knowledge and testing this does not affect shared IP stack zones. 
at
least not on my stystem.

[zones-discuss] Downgrading zones on Opensolaris 2009.x ( b131)

2010-01-25 Thread Paul van der Zwan
I have upgraded my Opensolaris system to b131 and followed the zoneadm 
detach/attach -u procedure to upgrade my zones
to b131 as well. Unfortunately I am running into bug 6912829 ( causes panic on 
zoneadm halt ) quite often.
Downgrading the global zone by beadm activating my old be is easy. But how do I 
get my zones back ?
Zoneadm attach complains that the zone is a newer rev than the global zone and 
that the global zone should be upgraded…

TIA
Paul

Unfortunately it sounds like you detached your zones
before doing the image-update.  If you do the image-update,
then reboot, then detach/attach, then you will have a zone
root for each BE and booting back is no problem.  However,
if you detach before the image-update, then you only have
one zone root and once you've updated that to match the
new BE, then there is no way to downgrade it if you boot back.

Ok that’s what I did. Detach first and then the image-update.
I saw a workaround for the panics so downgrading may be less important, but 
I’ll have
to change my procedure the next update.
Do you know of an ‘official’ zones/beadm/image-update doc that explains the 
correct procedure somewhere ?


We're currently in the process of updating the docs for the 2010.03
release so this should be covered better when thats done.  I blogged
a bit about this for the 2008.11 release:
