That wouldn't help. As long as there's a process around holding the zone active, the shutdown won't complete and you won't be able to reboot the zone. In this case, if you're stuck unkillably somewhere in the kernel, then the stuck thread will hold a cred_t that holds a reference to the zone_t -- preventing it from finishing. That's a driver bug that has to be fixed, not something that can be worked around. -- James Carlson, Solaris Networking <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sun Microsystems / 1 Network Drive 71.232W Vox +1 781 442 2084 MS UBUR02-212 / Burlington MA 01803-2757 42.496N Fax +1 781 442 1677 _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED]
