Three questions - migrating to branded zone

1. i read that VxFS (3.x) installed on a solaris 8 will not work on a branded zone. fair enough, but what is the impact of having the packages installed when the flarcreate is done? will the container fail to boot with those packages installed?

2. NTP client and server doesnt work on branded zone - does the container still get its time from the system clock?

1: Kernel modules are ignored in a non global zone.
2: It is possible to grant the right for a non global zone to handle NTP. There is no point in having more than one zone managing it as there is a single system clock shared by all zones.
3: Where is the third question ?

thanks for getting back to me, but i fear you missed my point. i am concerned about what will happen if i leave the packages installed after i migrate to the branded zone.

will the container work? will the fact that vfstab be looking for VxFS filesystems cause the container NOT to boot?

Before booting a Solaris 8 zone, you need to make sure all the mounts using vxfs (or ufs for that matter) are commented out in the zone /etc/vfstab.

do i have to do that before the flarcreate?

How would you ? Before running flarcreate, there is no zone to boot and no /etc/vfstab to check.

i have no idea what the process is yet. so i assume that i would change it via the global zone then?
