What I meant to say was that my OpenSolaris 2008.11 ipkg zones use /home for user directories instead of /export/home. I think it maybe has something to do with the automounter not being set up automatically in the zones? I know in the global zone in 2008.11, the /home directory is off limits

One thing I've found to be true though: either a machine is all zoned, or not. It gets horribly confusing to have real activity in the global zone, where you can half see the non-global zones, so if you have zones on a machine then it's easier to run nothing in the global zone and just use

Did you try using the: zfs send command? If each zone is in it's own zfs file system it makes sense that you could send the zfs file system containing the zone from one zpool to another or from one server to another using that zfs send command. You can even teleport an entire beadm boot
