I have sucsessfully migrated solaris 8 system to solaris 10 containers. and also mounted some RAID enabled partition on non global zone without any issue. now i need to connect a fiber channel to my host OS (solaris 10) and add the SAN partition to my container (solaris 8). if i run cfgadm command it says cfgadm: Library error: Device library initialize failed: Invalid argument.
there are some other ways to mount the SAN (mount the SAN on host and export the partition to container). but i need the above method . is it possible to mount the SAN partition from the non-global zone ? if so how should i do it .
As far as i know you can't give the non-global zones the required permissions which is needed to mount a FC LUN directly into the non-global zone.
I think you have to mount the LUN in the global zones, and then loop-back-mount them into the non-global zone.
