Hi Jordan, Thanks for the explanation. I am now clearer in understanding why ipkg does not support the option.
>Why do you need to use '-m copy'? Are you trying to clone zones across >ZFS zpools? The idea behind of this question was I expected it possible to copy my customized data to new/cloned zones without running 'zfsadm -z myzone ready' command. The directories under /root folders of cloned zone (under /myzpool/myfs/clonedzone/root/ to be more specific) do not show up until the cloned zone becomes ready/running statement. That means there are always two steps if I would like to copy my data, the first step is 'zfsadm -z myzone ready/boot', and the second is actual file copy. I thought if I 'copy' the zones and all of the folders under /root are reachable, I could skip the first step. As this is intentionally and carefully designed as OpenSolaris zone mechanism, I am really happy to live up to it. Thanks a lot.
