The SambaServer Agent provided as bundled agent together with SF HA is not zone aware. That means when I configure the samba server process in a Solaris zone the SambaServer agent is not able to monitor it.

I experimented with setting RunInContainer = 1 for SambaServer which however can't work as SambaServerAgent is not a Script Agent, but has monitoring built into the binary. So you can consider this an RFE to make the SambaServer and corresponding agents for Samba zone aware and honour ContainerInfo.

Thanks for bringing this. Curretly the SambaServer agent is not enabled for zones. I will check internally to see if this RFE can be considered.

I will be needing a zone-aware Samba agent in the near future. Was an RFE considered?
