I've had a look through the documentation on cloning a zone where the source and destinations are both on ZFS and I can't spot any obvious reasons why my clone operation works but doesn't seem to use the ZFS snapshot method, is there something special in the checks before the cloning I am missing?
This is all on a test box using Solaris 10U3, no patches added, is that maybe the problem? If so what patch adds the zfs snapshots to cloning? I'm assuming that it isn't using zfs snapshots as it takes a few minutes to clone the full root zone and when I issue the command zoneadm -z zone2 clone zone1 It does not say "Instead of copying, a ZFS clone has been created for this zone." but it all works and I can do the snapshots manually. also if I just create a zfspool and then specify the zonepath in the pool, it works but doesn't say a zfs filesystem has been created for this zone when I do the install. I create the pool using zpool create -f pool1 c1t0d0 plus it is a full root zone. regards Andrew _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
