Reminds me of the car commercial - the suggested price is blah,
nicely appointed for blah + $$$$$$. As Enda says, zfs and zones
are available, but will be nicely appointed in a future release.
the automatic creation of the datasets does not work. use of zfs
snapshot and clones when cloning a zone do not work. for LU the
be datasets (file systems).

If the zoneroot is no present, a mkdir will be done for you. and
the permissions will be set correctly. this has been that way since
u1 or u2 (u1 IIRC). A zfs dataset will not be automatically created
like it does in nevada. and if you do create the zoneroot, make sure
and set the permissions to 700 like Enda says - this is only done
automatically when we mkdir on your behalf. if you do it then you must
do it right.
zone1 is on ufs. zone2 will be a similar zone on zfs.
/dune/zones/s10u6 is already a dataset (file system). this will
(should) be live upgradable.
# zonecfg -z zone2 create -t zone1
# zonecfg -z zone2 set zonepath=/dune/zones/s10u6/zone2
# zfs create dune/zones/s10u6/zone2
# chmod 700 /dune/zones/s10u6/zone2
# zoneadm -z zone2 install
Preparing to install zone <zone2>.
Creating list of files to copy from the global zone.
