CarlsonJ, I'm afraid that the unfortunate subject line of these e-mails has
deceived you and others as to what the real problem here is. No one here is
really trying to install an snv_version in a non-global zone that is different
from the snv_version in the global zone (anyone who has more than 5 minutes of
familiarity with zones knows that that obviously would not work). The real
problem we are facing is this:
ZONES CANNOT BE INSTALLED anymore in OpenSolaris Indiana snv_129. They were
working fine a while ago, but then something changed in the /dev repository
when snv_130 came out and they stopped working! Updating past snv_129 is not an
option because that will panic the system.... so we need to find a way to
install snv_129 on a server and then install normal snv_129 build ipkg zones on
that snv_129 server.
Steps to duplicate the problem:
Step 1: Install OpenSolaris Indiana snv_129 (either in VirtualBox or on real
Step 2: Attempt to deploy a zone.
Step 3: The zone installation fails with this message:
r...@solarisunix:~# zoneadm -z testzone3 install
