Applies to:

Solaris Operating System - Version 10 10/08 U6 to 10 10/08 U6 [Release 10.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


'zpool' status command fails with assertion and dumps a core as follows. The line number can be different.



 The issue happens when the hostid recorded in the zpool label is different from the one of running system. For example, if a non-global zone has an independent hostid from the global zone, 'zpool status' on such a zone will abort.
