    Zone reboot issue

    942274
      Hi all,

      Since I'm running Virtual box in Solaris 11 in a zone, but when I reboot a non-global-zone, the error occurred like following message.

      Could anyone met this message before and how to fix it?



      zlogin redhat5 zlogin: login allowed only to running zones is shutting_down

          seems to be your zone was in shutting down state

          please check with zoneadm list -cv

          Thats why its not allow you to login

          try to halt zone woth zoneadm -z zonename halt

          and check the zone status and boot it

            Hello muvvas,

            I'd tried that you say before, but it couldn't be halt or reboot. The only way is reboot global zone to solve this issue. But I think this is some weird.
