Platform E25K 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#> zonecfg add fs set dir=/clocal/site/vendor/MOZILLA ------------> we'd like this dir mounted within the dataset directory structure below at boot. set special=/zshare/csv/MOZILLA set options=[ro,nodevices] add dataset set name=<zonename> 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: 79574 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 devices mounted as well as I told him to reference: www.sun.com/software/solaris/howtoguides/containersLowRes.jsp But I can't find concrete data if this is expected and or if I should create an rfe. Any guidance and or assistance would be appreciated.
