Just out of interest, what strange behaviour are you seeing with
"mounted" state.


It shouldn't be possible to get a zone into a 'mounted' state (so I
was told when
I hit the same thing a few months back). It's not documented anywhere
and shouldn't
be user visible.


Fortunately, now that Solaris is an OS OS (open-source operating system :-) ) you can research for yourself the possible conditions that a zone can be in the 'mounted' state.

I searched for some of the different states (ready running configured installed) and found the #define for ZONE_STATE_STR_MOUNTED. That led me to the #define ZONE_STATE_MOUNTED. The latter is used in a conditional a few times, but I only found one occasion where it can be *supplied* as a state, in kernel_state_to_user_state().

According to the inline doc, execution can only get there if the zone's root is mounted on $ZONEPATH/lu.

Hi
Indeed, mounted is a state that should only be used by the patch/package tools. Looks like in the case in question, pkgadd failed and left the zone mounted, at which zoneadm -z ( zone name ) unmount, will return it to installed ( halted) state.

But mounted is not documented in the docs or man pages as it is really an internal state.
