Here is what I tried in my OS Virtual Box image:

- created 2 zones (

- installed GlassFish in /usr/glassfish

- created another zone

In all the zones, /usr/glassfish is not visible.

Manually created /usr/foo and even that's not visible in any of the zones.

What could be wrong with my setup ?

Even with whole-root, I think something that delivers to /usr ought to

delivered to all zones in the same way.  Otherwise, I don't think the
packaging tools know enough to know when something should be common
and when it shouldn't.
