may be one should do in this example
create vxfs in g-zone then use lofs to mount it in zone
How can I make a writeable /usr/local in a sparse-root zone?
A: Use one of the methods above, for example:
global# mkdir -p /path/to/some/storage/local/twilight
global# zonecfg -z twilight
zonecfg:twilight> add fs
zonecfg:twilight:fs> set dir=/usr/local
zonecfg:twilight:fs> set special=/path/to/some/storage/local/twilight
zonecfg:twilight:fs> set type=lofs

I have a customer that is having a problem mount a vxfs filesystem in

Customer sent me a description on his issue..
As we discussed I am sending this email to describe my problems with
mounting of Vxfs filesystems in local zones. I am able to mount
Veritas volumes in local zones if the filesystem type is UFS as in the
As soon as I change the filesystem type to vxfs (and regen the FS) the
zone fails to boot because it can't find the mount command in
/usr/lib/fs/vxfs. That directory does not get created when the local
zone is created. I am using create -b to create zones which means
they should be "full". This being the case I tried to "bandaid" the
situation by creating /usr/lib/fs/vxfs in the local zone and putting a
link in to point to /etc/fs/vxfs/mount which is the same method used
by UFS. I copied both directories from the global. It still fails.
I need to know Sun's official position on this and the fix (if any).
If the mounting of Vxfs filesystems is not supported in local zones
this is a major bug. We use Vxfs for all Production applications and
this would severely limit our use of local zones in Solaris 10.
Thanks for any help on this
