Set a quota (10G should work just fine) on the filesystem and then
perform the zone install.  Afterwards remove the quota.

Thanks, seems to work just fine. It solved my immediate problem. But...
I also like to do clones of my zone and utilize zfs for this but that
doesn't seem to work. It has the same problem

If I do a "zoneadm -z mytest2 clone mytest" I get the same value too
large error. The problem is that I don't have a filesystem yet for
mytest2 since it needs to be cloned from mytest.

You can work around this by setting the quota on an ancestor of the to-be-created clone. Also, implementing RFE 6364688 "method to preserve properties when making a clone" would make workaround #1 (set a quota on the first fs) work for the cloned zone as well.
