You can't apply a Solaris update to a zoned system, prior to 10/08. The software that applies updates doesn't understand ZFS, and can't figure out how to make the zones accessible. The exception is non-native zones (including Solaris 8 Containers), which are never updated by the Solaris 10 updater software. > I already have 2 servers running S10 5/08, each running multiple zones, > some of these are having their "zonepath" on ZFS, and so far I never got any > issues.
