Solaris 10 11/06
The issue the customer is having is after adding a dataset to a non-global zone
they need to create local fs called /global and /clocal. This way they ensure a
lun belongs to a zone for portability and migration issues. They also want to
create a global zone pool for shared binaries and content called zshare that we
will mount to individual zones as need.
As they said unfortunately their standards dictate that they get mounted within
the local directory hierarch /clocal or /global. This is where the problem is.
The lofs shared dir tries to mount before the local zfs filesystems and fails.
It is a mount time issue where zoneadmd isn't aware of fs-local or vice-versa.
They'd like to open an RFE to get this functionality included. I would like to
know if it is designed to do this and or do we have further recommendations on
a better way to do this?
Here is what they are trying to do:
for example syntax may be snipped but you get the point
zpool create <zonename> <lun#>
set dir=/clocal/site/vendor/MOZILLA ------------> we'd like this dir
mounted within the dataset directory structure below at boot.
zfs create <zonename>/z01
zfs set mountpoint=/clocal/site/vendor/MOZILLA <zonename>/z01 ------>>>
the above can be done after this, but the share dir will not mount within
the /clocal directory structure at boot
zfs set quota=2gig
We have a work around where we mount the /zshare/csv/MOZILLA under root at boot
of a non-global zone. set filesystem to legacy within ZFS and mount lofs to
the correct place with /etc/vfstab.
Is this expected behavior? I did refer the customer to:
Title: Storage properties in Solaris[TM] 10 zones
I also referred him too: Bugid: 6347497 'add fs' of a ZFS filesystem doesn't
work for a local zone
See RFE 5044015 Zone can't boot with imported SVM device
and Bug ID: 6250256
Synopsis: Mount fails, zone services not started if additional
