Issue with Teradata ODBC installation on solaris Sparse Root zone.

I want to install Teradata ODBC driver (tdodbc__solaris_sparc64.03.06.00.06) on a Solaris (10) Small zone - (also known as a "Sparse Root zone"). It install successfully in the Global zone but fail when continuing for the small zone (QDAP0073A). It fails with the first dependency component (TeraGSS).



Server info:


uname -a
SunOS QDAP0073A 5.10 Generic_137111-01 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-880

isainfo -kv
64-bit sparcv9 kernel modules


The ERROR:


.....

try TeraGSS 06.02.00.14

Re: Issue with Teradata ODBC installation on solaris Sparse Root zone.

Hi,
With a sparse zone or small zone the /usr filesystem is actually read only version of the global.

Try one of the following.

a) install the TeraGSS driver in /usr in the global
create a new small zone and see if the driver is available to small zone.

b) install the TeraGSS driver in /opt directory using the pkgadd command -P /opt
-P option is the alternate root in the sparse zone or
try installing it from the global zone using the -P /zones/(zonename)/.../opt directory

c) Ask that a full zone be built and install in the full zone.

Good Luck
