The only way to do it today is to remove the zones. This is something that is being addressed by the Zulu project in install. Regular pfinstall (used by the upgrade process) is unaware of non-global zones and thus doesn't process them correctly. That (among other limitations) will be fixed by Zulu. In the mean time, the supported releases of Solaris (Solaris 10 and Updates) allow for upgrade on systems that have non-global zones configured. It does so using a mechanism (patching) that's never used on development builds of Solaris (which includes Solaris Express). -- James Carlson, KISS Network <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sun Microsystems / 1 Network Drive 71.232W Vox +1 781 442 2084 MS UBUR02-212 / Burlington MA 01803-2757 42.496N Fax +1 781 442 1677 _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
