Hi,
i am trying to Create the zone on Solaris 11. I configured the zone.
While installing the zone i got following error:

root@sol208:~# zoneadm -z testzone install
A ZFS file system has been created for this zone.
Progress being logged to /var/log/zones/zoneadm.20130104T063732Z.testzone.install

Installation: Failed. See install log at /system/volatile/install.3104/install_log

Following is the package information:

root@sol208:~# pkg publisher
PUBLISHER TYPE STATUS URI
solaris (disabled) origin online http://172.26.4.174:80/
root@sol208:~#

root@sol208:~# pkg list -avf entire

pkg://solaris/entire@0.5.11,5.11-0.175.0.0.0.2.0:20111020T143822Z i--

Please provide steps for package installation.

Thanks

    Hi,
    this:
    root@sol208:~# pkg publisher
    PUBLISHER TYPE STATUS URI
    solaris (disabled) origin online http://172.26.4.174:80/
    ............^^^^^^
    seems to be your problem. Try to enable this publisher.

    I am a bit confused about the error message though. In any case: if you try to install a zone, the publisher being used, must provide the same version of Solaris that is currently installed in the global zone.

    Regards

    Thanks for your Reply!

    I tried to enable the publisher. But i get the following error

    root@sol208:~# pkg set-publisher -e solaris
    pkg set-publisher: Could not refresh the catalog for solaris

    Unable to contact valid package repository
    Encountered the following error(s):
    Unable to contact any configured publishers.
    This is likely a network configuration problem.
    Framework error: code: 7 reason: Failed connect to 172.26.4.174:80; Connection refused
    URL: 'http://172.26.4.174:80'. (happened 4 times)

    root@sol208:~#

    Please help to resolve this.

    Thanks,
    Girish

    Obviously, the repository service on 172.26.4.174 is not working correctly. What does svcs -xv" or better "svcs svc:/application/pkg/server:default", which very probably is your pkg service. You should check, whether it is running, and if not, why it is not running.

    svcs -xv .... gives you more information and the name of the service's logfile.
