Now it makes sense....

The error was ( I had to change the server name to protect the

zoneadm: /zones/xxxxx: No such file or directory
could not verify zonepath /zones/xxxxx because of the above errors.
zoneadm: zone xxxxxx failed to verify

I didn't even think of that as I did do a shutdown and booted back to
single user.

Many thanks,

if you boot to Single User Mode ( as opposed to dropping to Single User 
from Multi User ) then you need to run the filesystem/local:default SMF,

or mountall -l
As otherwise the zone's zonepath will not be mounted.

What errors did you see?
