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.
