Operating Systems Solaris Virtual Terminal (Console) showing non-global zone? Post 303037492 by hicksd8 on Saturday 3rd of August 2019 05:23:42 AM
Which version of Illumos are you talking? I guess it's the equivalent of Solaris 10 or Solaris 11?

Why are you trying to do this?

A zone can be configured to boot automatically when the global boots (set when the zone is configured). So you can stop the zone booting automatically and start it manually using zoneadm.

A connection to the zone virtual console will persist across zone reboots.

Are you trying to debug something? Looking for an error message?

When you boot a zone manually (zoneadm) it will return to a prompt long before the zone is actually 'ready'. You can use truss to provide more feedback if the zone crashes on boot:

 # truss -o /var/tmp/zoneadm.out -aef -vall -wall zoneadm -z <zone name> boot

You can then view the /var/tmp/zoneadm.out file to see if it tells you anything.

Reference material from Oracle:
Non-Global Zone Login Methods - Oracle Solaris Administration: Oracle Solaris Zones, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones, and Resource Management

More information please. The skillset on this forum is awesome and I'm sure somebody here will help once we know what you are trying to achieve.

lx - Linux branded zone DESCRIPTION
The lx brand uses the branded zones framework described in brands(5) to enable Linux binary applications to run unmodified on a machine with a Solaris Operating System kernel. The lx brand includes the tools necessary to install a CentOS 3.x or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.x distribution inside a non-global zone. The brand supports the execution of 32-bit Linux applications on x86/x64 machines running the Solaris system in either 32-bit or 64-bit mode. Supported Linux Distributions The lx brand emulates the system call interfaces provided by the Linux 2.4.21 kernel, as modified by Red Hat in the RHEL 3.x distributions. This kernel provides the system call interfaces consumed by the glibc version 2.3.2 released by Red Hat. In addition, the lx brand partially emulates the Linux /dev and /proc interfaces. Configuration and Administration The lx brand supports the whole root non-global zone model. All of the required linux packages are installed into the private file systems of the zone. The zonecfg(1M) utility is used to configure an lx branded zone. Once a branded zone has been installed, that zone's brand cannot be changed or removed. The zoneadm(1M) utility is used to report the zone's brand type and administer the zone. The zlogin(1) utility is used to log in to the zone. Application Support The lx zone only supports user-level Linux applications. You cannot use Linux device drivers, Linux kernel modules, or Linux file systems from inside an lx zone. You cannot add any non-standard Solaris devices to a Linux zone. Any attempt to do so will result in a zone that zonecfg(1M) will refuse to verify. You cannot run Solaris applications inside an lx zone. Solaris debugging tools such as DTrace (see dtrace(1M)) and mdb (see mdb(1)) can be applied to Linux processes executing inside the zone, but the tools themselves must be running in the global zone. Any core files generated are produced in the Solaris format, and such files can only be debugged with Solaris tools. ATTRIBUTES
