You do not need to create two separate copies of zones. You can accomplish zone failover between nodes on SAN-attached disk with the Zone VCS agent on VCS 4.1 and 5.0. You can import non-global zones onto all VCS nodes that have an /etc/zones/index entry as well as the same /etc/zones/<zonename>.xml as eachother. Symantec told me they will be adding a proper detach/attach into 5.x. When they first made the VCS Zone agent, there was no such functionality in Solaris, but it has been now since Solaris 10 update 3. You can contact me off-list if you would like more specifics.

So basically today it sounds like we'll still need to build 2 seperate zones on each physical server for failover purposes. Especially in patching situations where I see this is the only workaround, unless someone has devised a way to only have one zone built and failed over via a SAN volume on each physical node and patching would not be an issue. I can't seem to find anything in the VCS 5.0 documentation that includes the attach/detach commands only some discussions that say this may be included some time in the near future. I'm assuming this is the same with SUN cluster 3.
