At some point you may have a solaris non-global zone up and running but are not able to take it down to add a network interface. For the longest time I thought in order to make any config change to a local zone would require the zone to be halted. Not the case any more with Solaris 10.
If you are wanting to add a permanent network interface to the zone, you still must use zonecfg to configure the zone so that once it does reboot the interface will be there. From the global zone do:
You can easily add more swap to your system if swap is a part of rpool providing there is space available. If you do not have enough space in rpool to increase swap then you are SOL. The only option you have is to create another zfs pool with more luns (disks).
After carving up a Clariion lun to one of my sun servers. I tried to add it to Veritas but it kept failing with an error similar to
root:dwhdev2 :[/root] vxdisk -f init c#t#d3
VxVM vxdisk ERROR V-5-1-5433 Device c#t#d3: init failed:

A few years ago, Deduplication was the industries biggest buzz word. Well that hype actually pan-out and is a vital way to save disk space. In a nutshell, Deduplication is the process of eliminating duplicate copies of data.
Now instead of having an appliance dedup the data, Sun’s Zettabyte File System (ZFS) will do it for you.
