For my test zones, I usually don't set a password via /etc/sysidcfg. Usually I don't configure ssh to allow root login, and the zones are configured with limited network services (secure by default), so I don't worry.
With build 105 (the one with Crossbow integrated), all of a sudden zlogin fails if the zone does not have a root password. The error is an incorrect password type of message. # zlogin master [Connected to zone 'master' pts/4] Login incorrect So does logging in on the console. The error messages for this on the console are: Jan 5 15:04:33 master login: pam_unix_account: zlogin: empty password not allowed for account root from local host Jan 5 15:04:33 master login: login account failure: Permission denied Is this intentional, or a side effect (especially for zlogin)? I looked for a flag day and did not find one. Not sure how long this has been happening. I don't remember it with 101[a]. If not intentional, I can file a bug.
