IHAC that created zones and wants the users to be able to reboot the
zones.they put the following in their password file:

bounce:x:0:1:Bounce Account:/:/usr/sbin/reboot

this way a user can 'su bounce ' and reboot the zone..The zone hangs
while coming down and customer wants to know why..

I checked with my escalation engineers and they mentioned that
'zoneadm -z ' was the correct proocedure to take down a zone..

Customer is stating there is no documentation that states that zoneadm
is the only procedure to take down a zone and that reboot is not

So I am looking for docmentation that confirms the correct procedures to
take down a zone and where reboot is not correct.

It maybe that reboot is acceptable as root but not supported using the
pasword file, but customer needs to see it in writing
