I try to use lucreate on a cluster node, where there is failover zone on
the other node.

so LU with failover zones is pretty much not supported really, or at least not well documented or tested either.

There is a doc that I put together a few years ago.

Now beaware that this doc is slightly out of date ( need to update it,more for LU that cluster ).

Hartmut also has a doc that I attached.

Son in general, there are a few manual steps, one has to complete, for instance after the boot to the ABE, one has to export the pool, then online the RG that controls the failover zone. Need to docuemnt that part.

Bug 15789658 is also recently opened for LU + failover zones.

lucreate fails saying that zone cannot be mounted, which is true, as it
is switched over to the other node.

At the moment I would like to use it to create a contingency boot
environment, but I planned to use it for patching as well.

In a clustered environment with many zones, ( assuming that they are
distributed between the two nodes) can I make lucreate work somehow ?

I did not find any switch for excluding zones, and some zones are
obviously cannot be mounted as they are one SAN, switched to the other node.

[root@V0006 ~]# lucreate -C /dev/dsk/c0t5000CCA03C3F8CF4d0s0 -n ABE -p
