making local zone's /var its own filesystem separated from local
zone's root seems to be a good idea for large systems.

But installing patches during single user mode will show error
messages like:

Cannot check name: //var/sadm/...

Patches will be installed partially.  Everything is ok if we
install patches during multi-user. But this is not an option for many

Question: Is it allowed to make local zone's /var a separate filesystem?

If yes, then patchadd has a bug which must be fixed.

If no, then man-pages zonecfg(1M) or zones(5) should mention that /var
must reside within local zone's root filesystem.

Can you enlight this? Thanx.
This is a bug in patchadd, 6438808, the fix is currently under test and should appear on SunSolve shortly, days that is.
The patch is
119254-31  ( sparc )
119255-31 ( x86 )

I will contact the relevant people to get this patch released asap.
