    Zones smf problem

      Hi

      We have a m3000 sparc with two zones.
      cat /etc/release
      Oracle Solaris 10 9/10 s10s_u9wos_14a SPARC
      Copyright (c) 2010, Oracle and/or its affiliates. All rights reserved.
      Assembled 11 August 2010

      In zones,
      zone1# svcs -vx
      svc:/application/print/server:default (LP print server)

          Hi ,
          Service Tags are not really required unless you specifically want to use them
          see this page for more info on Service Tags:

          and then decide whether you want to use them or not
          to disable them :http://wikis.sun.com/display/ServiceTag/Oracle+Service+Tag+FAQ
          svcadm disable stlisten stdiscover

          However the service should not fail , the above removes the symptom, but it does not resolve the root cause.

            Solutions:

            the 'svctag' user has been removed from the zone/system.

            Please verify that the user is still in the /etc/passwd.
            # grep svctag /etc/passwd.


            Return svctag user in /etc/passwd
