Zones for Solaris 10

$ zonecfg -z zone-1
zone-1: No such zone configured
Use 'create' to begin configuring a new zone.

The verify does not seem to work, as actually installing (cloning) the zone fails:

$ zoneadm -z zone-1 clone zone-0
/data/zone-1 must not be group readable.
/data/zone-1 must not be group executable.
/data/zone-1 must not be world readable.
/data/zone-1 must not be world executable.
could not verify zonepath /data/zone-1 because of the above errors.
zoneadm: zone zone-1 failed to verify
$ chmod 0700 /data/zone-1/
$ zoneadm -z zone-1 clone zone-0
zoneadm: zone 'zone-1': clone operation is invalid for running zones.

Oh, right, we have to halt the zone we want to clone from first:

$ zoneadm -z zone-0 halt
$ time zoneadm -z zone-1 clone zone-0
Cloning zonepath /data/zone-0...

Hm, strange error message, but the new zone seems to work:

$ time zoneadm -z zone-1 boot

$ zoneadm list -iv

  • RTFM on the disklayout again, currently we have:

  • RTFM on resource_controls(5), especially what happened to capped-memory and rcap.max-rss?

  • Although the new zone is responding to ping(1), networking feels kinda b0rked:
