First post here; the standard cry for help... Have configured a zone in just about as generic a manner as possible, per the many docs available. Looks like this: zone name="z1" zonepath="/opt/apps/zones/z1" autoboot="true" inherited-pkg-dir directory="/lib"/ inherited-pkg-dir directory="/platform"/ inherited-pkg-dir directory="/sbin"/ inherited-pkg-dir directory="/usr"/ network address="18.104.22.168" physical="ce0"/ /zone This system happens to have /opt/apps as a large filesystem where basically everything goes; hence my choice of /opt/apps/zones. It also contains an entirely unrelated product install directory; let's call it /opt/apps/foo.
Zones start by installing everything in the global zone, if you really want minimal zones, you would have to install the bare minimum of apps in the global zone and then add what is needed on a per zone basis. The only other way to not have everything from the global zone is to rm the files you dont want. All inherit-pkg-dir does is mount the specified directory from the global zone as a read only copy so they dont use any extra disk space, and they can't be modified. James Dickens uadmin.blogspot.com Zone z1 is booted, I login, I cd into directory /opt/apps (which
[i]EXISTS[/i], first of all), and I see the foo directory. It's contents are only part of what exists in the GZ directory /opt/apps/foo, and just so happen to be a couple of SUNW package directories. Why are these package dirs visible in z1? I'm not doing any inheritance of /opt, AFAIK.
