Hi Irlando,

my answers inline,

Q6.Are there any other types of issues with zones?
1. Do not limit the memory usage of Oracle using rcapd. It just does not

This is not true. It works, but you must understand the memory needs of Oracle, and you must understand how Solaris accounts for memory.

2. Cannot use Oracle DISM, but of course, what for?

This was true until Solaris 10 11/06. With that release we added support for configurable privileges. The global zone admin can assign the privilege PROC_LOCK_MEMORY to a zone which needs to use DISM. With that privilege, Oracle can use DISM.

If you do that, you might want to also use the resource control project.max-device-locked-memory to cap Oracle's use of locked memory. Whether you use the latter feature depends on how much you trust Oracle and how fast the DB will grow.
