Bug Description

In NCP2 RC1 zones do not have sysevent svc which A LOT of services depend upon.

E.g. apt-get install apache2-mpm-worker hangs in postinst script because invoke-rc.d issues a svcadm enable -st ...apache2...

Manual fix:
add "[ `zonename` = global ] || sleep 3600 & exit 0" after after ". /lib/svc/share/" in /lib/svc/method/svc-syseventd, do a dpkg-reconfigure sunwcsd and import the sysevent.xml again with "svccfg import /var/svc/manifest/system/sysevent.xml"

Output from svcs -vx:
svcs -xv
svc:/network/npiv_config:default (?)
 State: offline since Tue Mar 24 05:14:38 2009
Reason: Dependency svc:/system/sysevent is absent.
Impact: 19 dependent services are not running:

svc:/system/console-login:default (Console login)
 State: maintenance since Tue Mar 24 05:15:19 2009
Reason: Restarting too quickly.
   See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 1M ttymon
   See: /var/svc/log/system-console-login:default.log
Impact: This service is not running.

Changed in nexenta:
status: New → Confirmed

Important bug and a quick fix. Dev team should consider implementing it ASAP.
