I am attempting to make a Solaris 8 bootable drive from a flar image following these instructions from Oracle.
lucreate -s - -m /:/dev/dsk/c1t1d0s0:ufs \ -n second_disk
fails with a command line error. Trying again without the \, the command:
lucreate -s - -m /:/dev/dsk/c1t1d0s0:ufs -n second_disk
fails with the error message:
luconfig: ERROR: Template filesystem definition failed for /.. ERROR: Configuration of BE failed.
I found this in a page on the Oracle website on upgrade issues:
Zones Are Not in the Running State (7055968)
If you run the lucreate or the lumake command on a system running Trusted Extensions, the commands might fail if the system has labeled non-global zones and the zones are not in running state.
and the workaround says to:
Workaround: Ensure that all non-global zones are in the running state before using the lucreate and lumake commands.
But I am not sure that non-global zones are the issue. We are using ufs, not zfs, and I cannot find the zone administrations commands (zonecfg, zoneadmin) on this system.
I would like to understand how to make this work. Is the issue that there is a non-global zone on this system? How do I find out without zone administration commands? Is there something else I need to do before I run lucreate?
My system is a Sun-Fire-V210 (sparc) running SunOS 5.8 (which I believe is the same as Solaris 8).
