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?
