Failsafe Mode

If a login problem occurs and you cannot use the zlogin command or the zlogin command with the –C option to access the zone, an alternative is provided. You can enter the zone by using the zlogin command with the –S (safe) option. Only use this mode to recover a damaged zone when other forms of login are not succeeding. In this minimal environment, it might be possible to diagnose why the zone login is failing.
