Reminds me of the car commercial - the suggested price is blah, nicely appointed for blah + $$$$$$. As Enda says, zfs and zones are available, but will be nicely appointed in a future release. the automatic creation of the datasets does not work. use of zfs snapshot and clones when cloning a zone do not work. for LU the zoneroots must be datasets (file systems). > On s10u6 you > have to create the zonepath yourself, either mkdir or zfs create, > setting appropriate permissions too, If the zoneroot is no present, a mkdir will be done for you. and the permissions will be set correctly. this has been that way since u1 or u2 (u1 IIRC). A zfs dataset will not be automatically created like it does in nevada. and if you do create the zoneroot, make sure and set the permissions to 700 like Enda says - this is only done automatically when we mkdir on your behalf. if you do it then you must do it right. zone1 is on ufs. zone2 will be a similar zone on zfs. /dune/zones/s10u6 is already a dataset (file system). this will (should) be live upgradable. # zonecfg -z zone2 create -t zone1 # zonecfg -z zone2 set zonepath=/dune/zones/s10u6/zone2 # zfs create dune/zones/s10u6/zone2 # chmod 700 /dune/zones/s10u6/zone2 # zoneadm -z zone2 install Preparing to install zone <zone2>. Creating list of files to copy from the global zone. ........ time passes, stuff happens. bob _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
