I'm attempting to install MailScanner in a non-global zone which has a
hard-coded install path of /opt/MailScanner. /opt is lofs mounted
read-only in my zone.
Apparently moving it afterwards is no problem.
How can I temporarily remount /opt to /zones/<mailserver>/root/opt with
read-write to perform this installation.

zoneadm -z myzone halt
zonezfg -z myzone
zonecfg:myzone> select fs dir="/opt/MailScanner"
zonecfg:myzone:fs> set options=rw
zoneadm -z myzone boot
If you don't want to reboot the zone do this:
mount -f lofs -o rw /opt /pathtozoneroot/opt

Yep, tried all manner of mount variations - no joy.
mount: /opt: device busy
Although /opt isn't the mountpoint in the global zone, it's the lofs
device, so I can't quite work out why it is reported busy.
Nevertheless, I'll just give Phil Cordier's solution a go.
I was wondering if there was anything in between zonecfg+rebooting.
I'll need to reboot again afterwards to go back to ro.
touch(MAC) against a rw mounted FAT32 filesystem possible? Hi,
can a rw mounted FAT32 filesystem be "touched"
(if booted with Knoppix)in order to change
the MAC times?
Any tip is appreciated very much!

I don't think the FAT file system has three time stamps for every file,
as *ix filesystems do. The touch command should at least change
modification times (there are versions of touch av...
question for zone copy from one global zone to another global zone? Can i simply copy the container folder from on global zone to the other?
Also I need to edit all files under new global zone in /etc/zone/ ?
Is it all I need to do or I can not simply a zone like that?

you can do that but the package database will then be wrong

Configuring packages from zone to zone How does one install software/packages in a zone? Particularly in
/usr/local when that filesystem is read-only?
I wanted my zone to have a samba instance, so I installed sun freeware
samba (and dependant packages) in the global zone, they were installed
to my non-global zone by default, but when I went to edit my smb.conf
in my non-global zone - it was a read-only filesystem!
Since a lot of software requires conf files, that will be different
from zone to zone, what is the best way to deal w/ this?
For non-global zones, is it best to compile source for software needing
New filesystem and increaseing existing filesystem Hi. I am upgrading my SAP Oracle from 8.1.7 to 184.108.40.206. My instance is
on a MSCG with one package. The productive node is PRD while the
adoptive node is UAT. Currently,there is a check of disk space required
and i have concerns with the below
1) $ORACLE_HOME 3000MB
2) /oracle/stage 3000MB
3) /oracle 500MB
In additional, both (2) and (3) are on root filesystem. I planned to
move them out on separate filesystems. My understanding is that for
extending, its a normal way of command based. However, for new
filesystems, i will have to do more stuff.
My steps are as belows (for filesystem /oracle...
sparse zone with access to NFS from global zone Hello,
Hope anyone had practiced such solution,
I need to create zone which will have one of mountpoints pointed to NFS
mount from global zone.
Mounting NFS in sparse zone is not possible because of separated NFS
network and no additional address from that pool.
In general having nfs filesystem in zone config is not allowed and
generates error. I was able to omit this by creating additional
mountpoint in globalzone in "lofs" type. Now zone boots without warnings
but required filesystem is unaccessible:
# ls /sites
/sites: I/O error
df: cannot statvfs /sites: Not owner
OS X Journaling Filesystem vs UNIX Filesystem When installing Tiger, I noticed there were two options you could choose
from for selecting a file system. One was the OS X Journaling file
system, which I picked, and the other one was the UNIX filesystem. What
is the difference between the two? Do you get all the functionality
with the UNIX filesystem, except for journaling, as you do with the
other one? (Does spotlight work the same?) I know UNIX allows for case
sensitivity when naming files.

My DVD Drive wont read DVD-RW or DVD+RW Hi Chaps...
Sorry if this is a bit of a long winded post...
I have an Acer Aspire 1670 Lap Top fitted with a Pioneer DVD drive
This drive is compatible with DVD-R/RW and DVD +R/RW.
My problem is this..
When I load a DVD-RW that has a file on it into the computer and go to
My Computer in Windows XP it shows that there is a DVD in the PC but
doesnt show how much free space is on it.
I use an NIT DVD maker programme to burn onto the DVD-RW.
Even odder is that if I keep the disc in the PC it will show that it
has a file on it when I view the drive in my computer.
DVD+RW vs. DVD-RW, Mandrake 10.0, Lite-On Writer I've got Mandrake 10.0 on a system. I'm trying to burn a DVD ISO
image with my Lite-On DVD+-RW drive, model SOHW-1213S. I tried
burning to a blank Phillips DVD+RW disc using K3b 0.11.6, and
checking the "verify" box when burning to make sure the md5sums
match for the ISO and the burned image. I could never get the
verification to pass. When I try to mount that drive, it also

Again, K3b says the verification failed. This time I *could*

Swap Quanta Storage CD/RW for DVD/RW in my Sony VAIO Notebook? I was trying to find out if it were possible to upgrade my notebook's
combo drive to a DVD/RW drive.
I checked and the combo drive is a Quanta Storage Inc SBW-242U drive.
Quanta also manufactures a DVD/RW drive by the number SDW-085.
According to their website, the dimensions are identical, as are the
power requirements. The interface where the drive plugs into the
notebook is identical.
Only the location of the eject button appears to be changed, and as
that is located on the bezel of the drive, I would assume it does not

Filesystem concept hi all,
I sometimes comes across statements like this:
" Links can be created among files included in the same
In my opinion,everything belongs to the same filesystem(which is ext3
on my Linux),then what does exactly the statements like above ("...
included in the same filesystem") means?Does a home directory and root
directory implies different filesystems?

zones setup Hi,
I have a couple of questions about Zones.
Firstly, I'd like to set up a Zone that gets its (static) IP address by
DHCP; is this possible? I cannot see a mechanism for getting the H/W
MAC address of the zone's interface nor a way of specifying this in the
Also, once I set up a Zone and connect to it for a first time I get the
screens that complete the installation process. Is there any way to
automate this so that I can create Zones from a script and have them
completely ready for operation without any manual intervention?

What do YOU use Zones For? I have read much of the Sun propaganda concerning Zones. I even
understand some of the more basic implimentations of Zones in Solaris
10. Outside of security what are YOU GUYS using Zones for?
Is there some other advantages to Zones which Sun has not publized.
I'm trying to see if I should look harder at using Zones in our Web
Services architecture or application (NFS) servers, or in my NIS
