We have recently installed a Solaris 10 (Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 s10s_u10wos_17b SPARC) on the SPARC T4 and create two zones out of it.
We tried to install oracle database on the zone by running the installer (tried xclock and it works very well so display is not a problem).
Not only the zone was hang the entire Global zone SPARC server was hang and the only way to bring the system back is to power on and off it.
