1. lofs is probably a bad idea - mount them directly into a zone
lofs is the only supported option for vxfs.
While lofs is the only officially supported option, mounting directly
in the zone can be accomplished with a work-around. see:
Why exactly would lofs be a bad idea? What is the downside to lofs rather
than directly using VxFS? With lofs they get the benefit of the ability
