Yes, becasue these are zones and the daemon can only run in the global zone.
I can run it for you on the global zone, do you need specific parameters?
The farm consists of the T5220 for Solaris 9 and 10 and an M3000 for Solaris 11.

Would it be possible that I generate the output from the commands which
are read by hwloc from file in some kind of debug mode?
