I am running Solaris 10 11/06 and trying to use the new zoneadm detach and

this error and know how to get past it?
On source host:
zoneadm -z testzone halt
zoneadm -z testzone detach
I then move the detached zone to the exact path on the target host
On target host:
zonecfg -z testzone 'create -a /zones/testzone; exit'
[b]invalid path to detached zone[/b] <---- error message returned from zonecfg
The blank zone does not get created. I've checked the contents of the zone
(/zones/testzone) on the target host and it has the following contents:
Thanks for any guidance.
It doesn't look like you copied the zonepath over to the new host
correctly. When you detach a zone there should be a file named
'SUNWdetached.xml' in the zonepath directory. This contains the
data used in the 'zonecfg create -a' and 'zoneadm attach' commands.
Does this file exist in the zonepath on the source host? How did
you copy the zonepath to the new host?
