We are in the process of implementing Oracle Cloud Control 12c and of course Opscenter is a piece of it. When using Opscenter to install new zones on Sparc platform all works as expected. When using Opscenter to install new zones on a x86 server the process fails with not much information to go on. Without being too verbose with error messages we found the following in the /var/log/zones/zoneadm.323213129xxxx.ddasdhasdj.install file
Running auto-install: '/usr/bin/auto-install -z ddasdhasdj -Z dsaas7990000000000000dasdasda7777/rpool/ -m /tmp/manifest.xml.dsada -c /var/mnt/virtlibs/312321312890/zone-config-profile.xml
Error: auto-install failed.
Exiting with exit code 255.
===== Completed: /usr/lib/brand/solaris/pkgcreatezone this command is also followed by much of the same command-line qualifiers from above.
I'll will say this, the auto-install failed message is actually coming from line 242 fo the pkgcreatezone script found in /usr/lib/brand/solaris
Anyone with experience or knowledge in the area is greatly appreciated.
As it happens, yesterday, one our guys was working on the machine and rebooted it removing the /system/volatile/install_log so I can't say at this point. I did take a look at the log earlier and can't remember what I saw. I'll have him do another install attempt and let you know what we see.
