thanks for all reply, but can you suggest a way to lower the space occupied by a such zone? the problem with os2008.11 is that everything is installed at initial setup, but having zones occupying more than 5Gb is very bad!
This is incorrect. Only a small subset of packages are installed. I just did a fresh zone install. It only took 144 MB and there are the only 58 packages installed. If you've added extra packages you don't need, removing them will reduce the size of the zone. Likewise with zfs snapshots or clones you're not using. We're looking at sparse zones or other alternatives for the future, but since IPS does not currently support that concept, it cannot be used on OpenSolaris at this point.
