I'm attempting to install 11.2 Grid infrastructure inside a Solaris container but getting errors within the installer, step 8 of 15.

From /tmp/OraInstall.../installActions...

INFO: Executing [/tmp/OraInstall2009-11-21_10-24-37PM/ext/bin/kfod, nohdr=true, verbose=true, disks=all, status=true, op= disks, asm_diskstring='/dev/rdsk/c1*'] ...

I had more success using a simple SVM device, /dev/md/rdsk/m... The installer and kfod accepted the device and proceeded to the point of running root.sh, however when ASM attempted to create the diskgroup I specified ASM could not write to the device asynchronously and failed with ORA-27063.

/dev/dsk devices yield the same error. I gave up using SVM.

Within zonecfg I used this syntax for the raw device:

add device
set match=/dev/rdsk/c1t7d0s0

I can newfs and mount a filesystem created on /dev/rdsk/c1t7d0s0 from within the zone so it seems the generic OS components work ok.

I have not tried 11.1 or 10.2 (yet).

Any advice how to get around this problem would be much appreciated...

thanks, Jason--
