Shared Folders and IPS don't live along each other

Postby Carlos Azevedo » 11. Dec 2013, 10:59

I'd like to share my unsuccessful experience in trying to share a Solaris Host IPS repository via VirtualBox Shared Folders.
I'm running Solaris 11.1 SRU 13.6 and VirtualBox 4.2.18.

The Solaris host repository is as follows:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
$ pkg publisher
PUBLISHER                   TYPE     STATUS P LOCATION
solaris                     origin   online F file:///depot/solaris/
solarisstudio               origin   online F file:///depot/studio/

$ zfs list -r -t all /depot/solaris
NAME                           USED  AVAIL  REFER  MOUNTPOINT
rpool/depot/solaris           8.60G   221G  8.60G  /depot/solaris
rpool/depot/solaris@SRU-13.6    81K      -  8.60G  -

$ VBoxManage showvminfo server-1
...
Shared folders: 
Name: 'solaris', Host path: '/depot/solaris' (machine mapping), writable
...

The server-1 Solaris guest is as follows:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
root@server-1:~# grep solaris /etc/vfstab
solaris      -      /depot/solaris   vboxfs   -   yes   -

root@server-1:~# pkg publisher
PUBLISHER                   TYPE     STATUS P LOCATION
solaris                     origin   online F file:///depot/solaris/

At first, it seems everything is fine.
But when trying to install a NGZ here's what happens:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
root@server-1:~# zoneadm -z server-1a install -c /var/tmp/server-1a.xml
The following ZFS file system(s) have been created:
    zone/server-1a
