On my machine (running s01u4_06) I have 3 local zones.
pship2 @ / $ zoneadm list -cv
ID NAME STATUS PATH BRAND IP
0 global running /
2 cz2 running /zones/cz2 my_brand
5 cz4 running /zones/cz4 native
- cz3 installed /zones/cz3 lx
pship2 @ / $
cz2 is "my_brand" branded zone
pship2 @ / $ zoneadm -z cz2 mount
zoneadm: zone 'cz2': mount operation is invalid for branded zones.
Why is mount command disallowed for a branded zone ?
I can boot the zone, using the normal zoneadm -z cz2 boot command
Note: The config.xml and platform.xml for "my_brand" is identical to the
"native" brand except for the brand name.
mount is an internal state used by the patch/package commands only.
It basically does some mount magic, such that the zone's zone is mounted
in from the global lofs, plus /dev etc. Not really applicable to a zone
that is not native as it cannot be patched.
