I've been using zones since before Sun was shipping Solaris 10 CD's,
with various combinations of inherit-pkg-dir and have followed
zones-discuss regularly for a very long time.  This is the first that
I have heard anyone mention that only SUNWdefault SUNWblank are the
supported configurations.  If that is the case, why on earth does
inherit-pkg-dir exist in the zonecfg man page?  I see nothing about
the supportability of alternate inherit-pkg-dir selections listed in
the page above.

Sorry Mike, and anyone else confused by my brevity. I'll try to be clearer by being even briefer: ;-)

Good: "sparse-root + inherit-pkg-dir of anything except /usr, /lib, /sbin or /platform"

Good: "whole-root + inherit-pkg-dir of anything"

Bad: "sparse-root + inherit-pkg-dir of /usr, /lib, /sbin and/or /platform"
  That was the "Inheriting 1, 2 or 3..." part.

Did that help?
