I would not recommend modifying the file system from the global zone.
This provides a way for a malicious zone administrator to trash the
global zone -- for example, by changing that file to be a symlink to

Instead, enter the zone and modify the file there.  Something like

# echo Global Zone: `hostname` since `date` | zlogin phd-corner-z \
        'cat > /etc/globalzone_info'

Plus, it's easier.
