problem rebooting a local zone

# zoneadm -z reboot

does not work

zoneadm list -v, shows that local zone as still shutting down, but it never finishes

try
# zoneadm -z halt

several times.

If that still does not work do a

#ps -ef -z and kill the processes

single liner:

#kill -9 `ps -ef -z | awk `{print $2}’`

(danger will robinson with the above command if your zone names are greater than 8 chars)

then try the halt or reboot commands again

All else fails you may have to reboot the entire system
