We've Moved!

Ticket tracking is now hosted in JIRA:


In a Solaris zone, facter will call prtconf, which is not available inside zones. Facter will fall back to using vmstat, but not before producing an error on stderr, which should be redirected from the exec call.

bash-3.00# facter 
prtconf: devinfo facility not available
facterversion => 1.5.9
hardwareisa => sparc
