Hi Kathleen,

UFS is NOT a shared filesystem! What you are trying to do should not work.

A simple suggestion:

If you need the filesystem mounted globally, use lofs to mount the 
filesystem into the zones.

[EMAIL PROTECTED]:/]# zonecfg -z ldev7
zonecfg:ldev7> add fs
zonecfg:ldev7:fs> set dir=/shared
zonecfg:ldev7:fs> set special=/shared                     #  global 
mount point for /dev/dsk/c4t0d0s0
zonecfg:ldev7:fs> set type=lofs
zonecfg:ldev7:fs> end
zonecfg:ldev7> exit
