I migrated a Solaris 10 VirtualBox to an SXCE branded zone using my
When I booted the zone, there were failed services.
# svcs ... online 23:35:15 svc:/system/console-login:default offline 23:30:08 svc:/system/filesystem/autofs:default maintenance 23:30:09 svc:/network/security/ktkt_warn:default maintenance 23:30:09 svc:/system/sac:default maintenance 0:05:20 svc:/system/cron:default maintenance 0:07:08 svc:/network/rpc/bind:default
Checking out the
# svcs -xv rpc/bind svc:/network/rpc/bind:default (RPC bindings) State: maintenance since Tue Jul 13 00:07:08 2010 Reason: Start method exited with $SMF_EXIT_ERR_CONFIG. See: http://sun.com/msg/SMF-8000-KS See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 1M rpcbind See: /var/svc/log/network-rpc-bind:default.log Impact: 1 dependent service is not running: svc:/system/filesystem/autofs:default
and looking at the log file:
[ Jul 12 23:26:43 Executing start method ("/lib/svc/method/rpc-bind start") ] svc.startd could not set context for method: chdir: No such file or directory [ Jul 12 23:26:43 Method "start" exited with status 96 ]
A bit of searching showed that the “could not set context” error is
generally to do with missing home directories. In this instance,
hadn’t been included in the
flar I made of the original Solaris 10 VBOX.
# mkdir /root # init 6
And everthing is happy. Another pointless, annoying linux-ism bites me in the arse. Thanks.
