Hi,

On my machine (running s01u4_06) I have 3 local zones.

pship2 @ / $ zoneadm list -cv
 ID NAME             STATUS     PATH                           BRAND    IP
0 global running / native shared 2 cz2 running /zones/cz2 my_brand shared 5 cz4 running /zones/cz4 native shared - cz3 installed /zones/cz3 lx shared
pship2 @ / $

cz2 is "my_brand" branded zone

pship2 @ / $ zoneadm -z cz2 mount
zoneadm: zone 'cz2': mount operation is invalid for branded zones.

Why is mount command disallowed for a branded zone ?
I can boot the zone, using the normal zoneadm -z cz2 boot command

Note: The config.xml and platform.xml for "my_brand" is identical to the "native" brand except for the brand name.

Hi
mount is an internal state used by the patch/package commands only.
It basically does some mount magic, such that the zone's zone is mounted in from the global lofs, plus /dev etc. Not really applicable to a zone that is not native as it cannot be patched.
