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). -- Paul Kraus _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
