    Please remember if user server is mirrored mount /dev/md/dsk/d /a instead of individual root slice as shown in above example. Bzu in mirrored case the disk will go out of sync if we use individual root slice. Please take care of this point.

    For Solaris zones, i have an issue to login to the zone by zlogin zonename. Immediately it will output connection lost. But when i issue zlogin -S zonename, i can login to the zone. Is there anything wrong with my zone?
