I'm running OI 151a. I'm trying to create a zone for the first time, and am getting an error about zfs. I'm logged in as me, then su - to root before running these commands.
I have a pool called datastore, mounted at /datastore Per the wiki document http://wiki.openindiana.org/oi/Building+in+zones, I first created the zfs file system (note that the command syntax in the document appears to be wrong, so I did the options I wanted separately): zfs create datastore/zones zfs set compression=on datastore/zones zfs set mountpoint=/zones datastore/zones zfs list shows: NAME USED AVAIL REFER MOUNTPOINT datastore 28.5M 7.13T 57.9K /datastore datastore/dbdata 28.1M 7.13T 28.1M /datastore/dbdata datastore/zones 55.9K 7.13T 55.9K /zones rpool 27.6G 201G 45K /rpool rpool/ROOT 2.89G 201G 31K legacy rpool/ROOT/openindiana 2.89G 201G 2.86G / rpool/dump 12.0G 201G 12.0G - rpool/export 5.53M 201G 32K /export rpool/export/home 5.50M 201G 32K /export/home rpool/export/home/mcreamer 5.47M 201G 5.47M /export/home/mcreamer rpool/swap 12.8G 213G 137M - Then I went about creating the zone: zonecfg -z zonemaster create set autoboot=true set zonepath=/zones/zonemaster set ip-type=exclusive add net set physical=vnic0 end exit That all goes fine, then... zoneadm -z zonemaster install which returns... ERROR: the zonepath must be a ZFS dataset. The parent directory of the zonepath must be a ZFS dataset so that the zonepath ZFS dataset can be created properly. Since the zfs dataset datastore/zones is created, I don't understand what the error is trying to get me to do. Do I have to do: zfs create datastore/zones/zonemaster before I can create a zone in that path? That's not in the documentation, so I didn't want to do anything until someone can point out my error for me. Thanks for your help! -- Mark
