    Q:Creating Solaris 11.1 zone inside Solaris 11.1 LDOM fails

    Andy Tael-Oracle
      I have a server where I've created a LDOM and I'd like to create zones inside that LDOMs and it isn't working at all for me. If I try to create a zone outside of my LDOM it works perfectly fine. What am I missing here?
      Control domain: host-22
      LDOM hostname is host-40.
      Zone name is wls-zone.
      OS: Solaris 11.1
      Server: T5220
      Some information from the SP:
      ============================ FW Version ============================
      Sun System Firmware 7.4.4.f 2012/09/07 17:21
      ====================== System PROM revisions =======================
      OBP 4.33.6.a 2012/03/29 11:22
      I am trying this when I am creating the zone and I get an error message when I am trying to boot the zone, which I don't know the solution or how to debug. AFAIK, in Solaris 11.1, the VNIC should be created automatically when creating the zone (as it does on a bare metal machine without LDOMs)?
      root@host-40:~# zoneadm -z wls-zone boot
      zone 'wls-zone': failed to create vnic for net0: operation failed
      zoneadm: zone 'wls-zone': call to zoneadmd failed
      The zone is very simple:
      root@host-40:~# zonecfg -z wls-zone info
      zonename: wls-zone
      zonepath: /rpool/zones/wls-zone

      Some more information executed inside the LDOM:

      Any ideas what could be wrong?
