I have three SAP database instances/central instances running in three sparse zones with no problem.
I have created a new sparse zone for a new SAP installation (Solution Manager 4.0) and started the installation. SAP requires a 1.4.2 SDK even though Java 1.5 comes with Solaris 10. The 1.4.2 SDK is in /usr/j2se. The installation errors out because it can't get "write" rights to /usr/j2se/jre/lib/security/local_policy.jar as it is trying to install some security encryption JCE component. I have thought about creating a /usr/j2se_zonename file system, copying the contents of /usr/j2se into it and then mounting /usr/j2se_zonename in the zone as a lofs with the name /usr/j2se. However when I do the copy of /usr/j2se I get some recursion errors. Any thoughts about how to add a writable /usr/j2se into the sparse zone with the least amount of effort ? Otherwise plan B would be to create a "large" zone with a writable /usr directory.
