It sounds like you did not complete system configuration for the
new zone. When you clone a zone the new zone is in the unconfigured
state, just as if you had done a fresh install. Until you configure
the zone many services won't be on-line. As far as file sizes, was the
new zone bigger or smaller? when the zone is copied sparse files might
expand to full size.
