See I/OAT description here.
Solaris (at least snv_93 and and snv_95) panics if large amount of traffic is sent across the interface dedicated to a zone with exclusive TCP/IP stack. For example, start Firefox and forward the X traffic to the global zone.

If after entering username/password you see a small window (with a going back and forth blue “slider”) saying:
“Completing post install setup”
most likely svc:/system/postrun/default service is not running.
Check the status:
# svcs -vx postrun
and enable it if it’s disabled (for example, after a system upgrade)
# svcadm enable postrun
Related system packages:
# pkginfo | fgrep postrun

After upgrading to snv_93 SqueezeCenter (quite predictably) refused to start again. The error was:

The issue is related to the same Scalar::Util module. Just force install it like explained here.

Tried to install Vermillion 94 yesterday (GNOME 2.23.4) but had to fail back to nevada_92 (GNOME 2.22.2), because 94 was almost unusable (e.g. right button did not work, window manager did not want to start automatically, etc). Both installers failed to install JDS correclty (missed or incorrectly configured packages and files).
For example, libgnome-desktop-2.so.2 was missing in v94.

After hitting this bug (yes, again and again) I had to unmount the broken file system and run fsck (twice). But then I apparently hit anoter bug (or a feature?) – I could not mount the file system back.
xeon# mount /dev/dsk/c2d0s3 /export/docs
mount: /dev/dsk/c2d0s3 is already mounted or /export/docs is busy
Neither pwdx not lsof showed any processes using /export/docs. The solution was to recreate the directory:
xeon# rm -rf docs
xeon# mkdir docs
xeon# mount /dev/dsk/c2d0s3 /export/docs (after a loooong pause)
xeon# mount | fgrep docs
/export/docs on /dev/dsk/c2d0s3 read/write/setuid/devices/intr/largefiles/logging/xattr/onerror=panic/dev=1980043 on Tue Jul 1 01:07:08 2008
