Paul, We've made a choice to have zones be minimized by default. > The 99 pkg zone guest almost works for me. However, > when I run "/usr/sbin/netservices open", I'm getting errors. You can safely ignore those (or file them as bugs against netservices). Netservices is trying to enable/disable optional systems services without testing to see if they are there. > Anyone know what the missing pkgs are in order > to get netservices to run correctly?

In (very) recent builds, you can do: zoneadm -z myzone install -e slim_install And that will do everything. > Also, when I boot up the zone client, I get a lot of network setup > questions.

It's /etc/.UNCONFIGURED So are you following the procedure documented at http://docs.sun.com/app/docs/doc/819-2450/z.login.task-1?a=view ? (search for "sysidcfg") You might have to give us more specific details otherwise. If you're saying that the sysidcfg file stuff isn't working right, that might be a bug we need to address. -dp -- Daniel Price, Solaris Kernel Engineering http://blogs.sun.com/dp _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
