hm. detach is failing because attach never marked any zone dataset as active. could you file a bug against detach to make it more robust in the face of failiures?
to work around this problem you might just want to edit /etc/zones/index and change the zone state to "uninstalled". (this will essentially undo the "attach -F" you did earlier.) then you can do an attach -u to properly attach the zone. ed On Fri, Jun 12, 2009 at 09:12:53AM -0700, Ian wrote: > Hi Jerry, > > Ok - I fell through the cracks on the upgrade: nothing new there ! > > I am having some trouble with the detaching though: > > # zoneadm -z web detach > ERROR: Error: no active dataset. > > Do I have to mount/unmount web/ROOT/zbe manually before trying this ?
