Thank you Mike. 

Please let me know which services (via rc or SMF) got affected by this.
Mainly if they belong to OS or Infrastructure software or applications?

If SMF or rc scripts will start services that require non-loopback
addresses are up, you will have race conditions between the normal
zone boot process and VCS adding the IP address.  The way that I have
worked around this is to have the zone boot into single-user mode by
default (svcadm milestone -d svc:/milestone/single-user:default), then
add an application resource that runs "init 3" after the IP address is
up.  The monitor script for this resource can check to be sure that
"svcs -o state -H svc:/milestone/multi-user-server:default" returns

I have requested that Symantec improve things in this area.  In
particular, I have requested:

- zones should be able to specify boot arguments
- there should be a zone run-level resource type
