Failed or broken state for SmartOS zone
During a zone reprovision I run into the problem that it failed. The only fail was an broken
zoneinit script that i've created myself. But now the zone is in a
failed state, so it isn't possible to
reboot the machine with the
$ vmadm list UUID TYPE RAM STATE ALIAS 82f1ff1f-7d70-4025-a23a-e8623aee655e OS 512 failed router
The only valid command is to remove the zone, but that wasn't a possible solution for me. I've found a small workaround by modifying the
$ vim /etc/zones/82f1ff1f-7d70-4025-a23a-e8623aee655e.xml
Search for the line that contains
failed and remove it.
Now you will be able to start or reprovision the zone again. This is only a workaround and could also break your zone.
