I've just installed a basic zone on a current dev build of OS, I'm not a bigtime zones user but I thought I'd play around with the feature some more.
Firstly, and this is a fairly basic thing but something I've always had problems with: No matter what terminal setting I choose when I first configure the zone, terminal applications such as Vim don't display normally. When zlogin'd to a zone, Vim will display in a fixed size and displays such oddies as only changing the last line when scrolling. I've had many problems with Vim and terminal emulations over the years but I've never managed to solve this one. To combat the Vim problem, I thought that it might work better when ssh'ing in from a working machine (the global zone). Unfortunately, after creating a user and home directory, ssh'ing in just hangs after the motd. If I force the command from ssh (ssh m...@xxx /bin/bash) I can type and run commands but I don't get a prompt. After some googling around I tried adding the -t option to ssh but that just hangs as well (totally locks up the terminal, have to kill manually). I'm probably wrong but I believe all this could be related however its above me so I thought I'd ask the experts.
