Solaris 10 10/08 Release Notes

Upgrading a Solaris 10 System with Non-Global Zones to the Solaris 10 10/08 Release Might Cause the Local File System Service to Fail (6428258)

Upgrading a Solaris 10 3/05 system or a Solaris 10 1/06 system to the Solaris 10 10/08 release with non-global zones might cause the SMF service that mounts local file systems to fail in the non-global zones. As a result, other services in the non-global zones might fail to start.

After upgrading a Solaris 10 system with non-global zones to the Solaris 10 10/08 release, services might be in the maintenance state. For example:

# zlogin myzone svcs -x
    svc:/system/filesystem/local:default (local file system mounts)
     State: maintenance since Wed May 24 13:18:06 2006
    Reason: Start method exited with $SMF_EXIT_ERR_FATAL.
       See: /var/svc/log/system-filesystem-local:default.log
    Impact: 18 dependent services are not running.  (Use -v for list.)


Reboot the non-global zone from the global zone. For example:

global# zoneadm -z myzone reboot
