Hello Vic,

You have a few options.  You can use secure by default to
disable most services and then as a post-zone creation 
process, run a custom script that enables the services 
that you want enabled through svcadm.

Or, you could through jass define a custom set of services
that you want disabled and enabled.

Or you could create a custom smf template that sets the
service end states that you desire.

All three of these options plus one more are available as
through the -s option in the Zone Manager script.  Feel free
to download this bash shell script and re-use the methods
employed in your own script.  The purpose of the Zone Manager
project is to greatly simplify zone creation and management.
And I highly encourage you to re-use whatever you like from

Hope that helps!
