HowTo Investigate Hangup or Unexpected Reboot of a Solaris Zone (Doc ID 2214066.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 20, 2016

Applies to:

Solaris x64/x86 Operating System - Version 10 3/05 HW1 and later
Solaris Operating System - Version 10 3/05 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

This document lists the files and data that are most commonly required when diagnosing unexpected reboot of a Solaris zone

A non-global zone does not panic or reset in the traditional sense. 
During shutdown of a non-global, all zones related processes will exit and the kernel in global zone is cleaning up the state related to the zone.
In case of issues with a non-global-zone, collect this information form the global zone, since the processes of all zones are visible from the global zone.
