Just to close this one out (partially at least), and thanks to Robert for pushing it to the top of my list. The problem was a SEGV immediately after reading kstats. It appears that iPlanet is reading cpu stats into a fixed size array and whoever wrote that hadn't allowed for a 128-cpu system. After adding dedicated-cpus and capping the container to 4 cpus, iPlanet starts just fine. -- -Peter Tribble http://www.petertribble.co.uk/ - http://ptribble.blogspot.com/ _______________________________________________ zones-discuss mailing list email@example.com
