Good point. However the original issue about using a subset of the sparse stands. It's never tested and unlikely to work right. > Am I just hosed?

You may want to check out the ZFS clone features, as that'll save a significant amount of space. In some cases, you don't actually need whole-root. All you really need are some writable directories inside the inherited mount points. In those cases, you can set up lofs mounts to provide writable storage to the zone. -- James Carlson, Solaris Networking <james.d.carl...@sun.com> Sun Microsystems / 35 Network Drive 71.232W Vox +1 781 442 2084 MS UBUR02-212 / Burlington MA 01803-2757 42.496N Fax +1 781 442 1677 _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org
