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
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
As this is intentionally and carefully designed as OpenSolaris zone mechanism,
I am really happy to live up to it.
Thanks a lot.
