I have just restarted a b133 host with several zones and no none of them

I've seen this mentioned as an issue after an upgrade, but this system
only has one BE (the active one) and all I have done is a restart.

Is there any way to get them back?

You haven't provided any information to enable anyone
to help you.

I thought I had, all I did was a reboot.

Are the datasets still there?


What does 'zfs list' show?

None of the zones boot.

What is the zonepath of one of the zones which won't
boot? Did you do anything with your BE's on this system
since you installed the zone?


ls /zoneRoot/svn/
dev root

There is only one BE. the system was installed with b133.

The svn zone won't boot because there is no zfs dataset for
the zonepath root.  There should be two datasets named
rpool/zoneRoot/svn/ROOT and rpool/zoneRoot/svn/ROOT/zbe.

You might be able to determine some information about what
happened using the 'zpool history' command.  That would show
you if the dataset was created and then later destroyed.  That
might give you a clue when that happened and you could
try to narrow down what happened from there.

It looks like you have datasets for other zones with zonepaths
of /zoneRoot/ftp, /zoneRoot/ldap and /zoneRoot/pdc.
What is the error you get when you try to boot one of those
