If zones are used is there a limit to the number of slices that can be created?
My goal would be to setup a normal install with the normal slices such as /,
/usr, /etc, /opt, /export/home and others that would be shared to the sparse
zones then create at least 5 more slices for different sparse and whole zones
which would be at least 10 zones. Does this make sense or is there a better way
to accomplish this?
I don't think there is a _direct_ connection between zones and disk
slice limitations. If you need to go over seven slices on a physical
disk (or logical LUN), then you need to use SLVM Soft Partitions.
There may be a limitation in terms of the number of filesystems that
can be mounted in a non-global zone. We are using non-global zones
with at least 10 filesystems loopback mounted (LOFS) from the global
zone (that is, 10 LOFS _beyond_ the zone FS and the 4 pkg-inherited
LOFS mounts for a sparse zone).
