Solaris 10 zone crash dump file?

I'm running Solaris 10 with a zone called "testzone"
If I do a "reboot -d" on the host, as expected the kernet panics, reboots and creates a crash dump file in /var/crash

However no crash file is created in testzone.

My question is how can I tell if a zone crashs or shuts down gracefully?
If a zone crashs where is its dump file?

There is a single kernel running regardless of the number of zones. If the kernel crashes, its dump will be in /var/crash on the global zone. It will contain information about all running zones at the crash event.

thanks jlliagre.

Just one other quick question.
If an application in the zone (not global zone) crashs, will the log files be on the zone \var\log ?
Or will they be in the global zone log files?

They should be in /var/adm/messages of that zone.

Application log files are stored in zone directories, not globally (unless the global zone happen to be accessed through the network as log file recipient). On the other hand, application core files can be stored in the non global zone, the global zone, both or none. See the coreadm manual page for details.
