I have a T4-1 with Solaris 11.1, LDom ver 18.104.22.168 and I'm encountering two problems with zones.
I'd greatly appreciate help on these, especially the first one.
I have created multiple guest LDoms, all Solaris 11.1, and they all work fine.
The first problem is that I can not boot any zone I create in a guest LDom, the zone installs fine but I get error when trying to boot it, complains it can not create vnic. I get the same error when trying to boot a zone in any guest LDom.
# zoneadm -z tzone1 boot
zone 'tzone1' failed to create vnic for net0: operation failed
zoneadm: zone 'tzone1': call to zoneadmd failed
root@ldm1:/root# dladm create-vnic -l net0 vnic1
but that didn't work, it complained:
dladm: vnic creation over net0 failed, operation failed.
The second problem is that when I try to create a zone on the primary LDom of this machine, I get an error when installing the zone
primary# zoneadm -z tzone3 install
The following ZFS file system(s) have been created:

using a different matching pattern, or refreshing publisher information:

I get the same error for all zones that I tried to create on the primary LDom.
This is the first time I'm working with a sun4v, I had earlier created zones with Solaris 10 on sun4u without any problem.
I don't plan to use zones on the primary, so that's not a pressing issue, just I'm not sure if the problems are related.
On the other issue....do a pkg publisher and see if you are connecting to the oracle package manager. Also you can try to ping oracle. If not then create your own pkg publisher. There are steps on how to do this online.
