doing a dry-run attach of a detached zone fails with the message

for real succeeds though. I would expect the dry-run to succeed too
because the zone was created on this system so everything (packages,
patches, network interface etc. are the same). This is on build 52.
Ok, I figured this one out. According to the spec for dry-run
The syntax for dry-run attaching a zone will be:
# zoneadm attach -n path_to_manifest
This leads to the 'zoneadm: missing or invalid brand' error message.
However, according to the man page it should in fact be:
'zoneadm -z aap attach -n path_to_manifest
This works ok. I'll file a bug for the fact that 'zoneadm attach' isn't
flagged as a usage error but issues a bogus error message.
