Configuration example of Oracle ASM in Solaris Container.

In this post I will give you a tip on how to setup Oracle ASM in Solaris Container. The main point of container's configuration is to set proper privileges. Your container should have proc_priocntl (must) and proc_lock_memory (highly recommended) privileges in order to function properly with ASM in it. Use the following as an configuration example when creating container and adjust it for your needs. Please read comments inlined:


# container will be named zone1

# make sure that directory /zones exist and have permissions 700

set zonepath=/zones/zone1

set autoboot=true

set limitpriv=default,proc_priocntl,proc_lock_memory

set scheduling-class="FSS"

set max-shm-memory=16G

# use ip-type exclusive at your wish, non-exclusive is also possible

set ip-type=exclusive

add net

set physical=e1000g1


add fs

set dir=/usr/local

# make sure /opt/zone1/local exist

set special=/opt/zone1/local

set type=lofs


add fs

# mount /distro from global zone into container.

# I have Oracle distribution files there

set dir=/distro

set special=/distro

set type=lofs

add options [ro]


# this device will be used for ASM inside container

add device

set match=/dev/rdsk/c4t600A0B8000562790000005D04998C446d0s0


# permit to use 16 cpu within container

add dedicated-cpu

set ncpus=16-16




Put this confing into zone1.txt and edit this file to adjust your configuration. Then create, install and boot container.

# zonecfg -z zone1 -f zone1.txt

# zoneadm -z zone1 install

# zoneadm -z zone1 boot

When you are done login to newly created container and proceed with installing Oracle and configuring ASM.


  1. Since I have dual-FC connected 6140 array I have it configured with Solaris I/O multipathing feature enabled

# stmsboot -D fp -e

  1. I really like to use VNC to access my lab remotely
