I'm reading some solaris 10 tutorials about ZFS and Zones. Is it possible to create a new storage pool using my current hard disk in which I installed solaris???
I'm a bit new in Solaris, I have a SPARC box in which I'm learnin about solaris 10. I have installed Solaris 10 using ZFS file system. I think my box only have 1 disk but not sure. I see 46 GB of free space running "df -kh " commandThis shows two disks. In a production setup you might mirror this.
I run "format" command, this is the output
root@orclidm # format
Searching for disks...done
AVAILABLE DISK SELECTIONS:
0. c0t0d0 <SUN72G cyl 14087 alt 2 hd 24 sec 424>
1. c0t1d0 <SUN72G cyl 14087 alt 2 hd 24 sec 424>
Specify disk (enter its number):

I read in a tutorial that when you create a zpool you need to specify an empty hard disk, is that correct?
Please point me on the best approach to create zones using zfs pools.Your storage rpool is 68GB in size on a 72GB disk .... therefore the disk is full up and their is no space for another zfs pool. If zpool status shows your disk is mirrored by zfs that is that. Otherwise you may choose to create a storage pool on the other disk (not best production practice).
