Thanks Jerry for the quick reply. I am making progress, but no cigar (yet). Now
zoneadm: zone 'X': ERROR: attempt to downgrade package SUNWgtar, the source had
patches but this system does not
It does not give me a patch number, so I can't add it to the bad_patches file.
Or maybe it does ?
Is there a list of patches I should add to bad_patches for this to work ? The
workaround mentions an attached file, but I don't see it.

This is bug:
6743776 zone update on attach should ignore all "special" patches
This is escalated and a patch is being developed. The workaround
is in the bug report (the workaround is actually the fix). It
updates the /usr/lib/brand/native/bad_patches file. You can manually
do this as well.
