    local zones during global shutdown in Solaris 10




      I am trying to determine if issuing a shutdown command from the global zone, e.g. shutdown -g0 -i5 -y performs graceful shutdowns on any running local zones, or does it issue a halt to the local zones without running shutdown scripts in them.  Searching the Solaris zones forum brings up some older discussions (pre 2010) where users reported a halt was done, but the expectation is this would be changed in later Solaris 10 patches or revisions.  Has this ever been addressed?    Is there a way to determine if a local zone has been halted or shutdown?  What is the recommended way to perform a shutdown of a global zone, when local zones are running?
