Getting Error OTD-64018 while creating fail over group in OTD on Solaris 11.1 Sparc.
The error happens either using OTD admin console or tadm CLI.

Error Code: OTD-64018

Above Error is seen while creating a failover group between 2 admin-node instances running in the global zone of 2 ldoms:

(admin server is running in a zone using one of the LDOMS).

May be this is due to tadm utility trying to execute the vrrpadm command with the option -T, but if you run vrrpadm in the command line there is No -T option available:

root@NODE1:~# vrrpadm
usage:  vrrpadm <sub-command> <args> ...
         create-router -V <vrid> -l <link> -A {inet | inet6} [-p <priority>] [-i <adv_interval>] [-o <flags>] <router_name>
         delete-router <router_name>
         enable-router <router_name>
         disable-router <router_name>
         modify-router [-p <priority>] [-i <adv_interval>] [-o <flags>] <router_name>
         show-router [-P | -x] [-o field[,...]] [-p] [<router_name>]

Solaris version is 11.1 and vrrp has been installed using (pkg install vrrp)

otd-admin@otd-admin:/as/otd-admin/otd_11_home/bin$ ./tadm create-failover-group --config=preproduccion --backup-node=NODE2-zfsxx.xx.xx.xx --router-id=33 --verbose --port=8989 --user=admin --network-prefix-length=22
Enter admin-user-password>
Error on node '':
OTD-64018 An error occurred while executing the command /usr/sbin/vrrpadm: unrecognized option '-T'
