Also I created a root  passwd on my Solaris 10 U7
box as abc123, and the encryption from my /etc/shadow
is MNY4FaPMbBnRs, not what you supplied. I would
think the encryption would be the same.

are you running opensolaris?

if so, i'm guessing that the problem is the format of the hashed
password.  by default, solaris version <= 10 and nevada use crypt for
hashing passwords, but opensolaris uses SHA256.  these settings seem to
be controlled via /etc/security/policy.conf.  just search for string
CRYPT_* in that file and read the associated comments.

I use sysidcfg to configure my zone.  However, during configuration, the root 
password gives a syntax error.  The password I use in the sysidcfg is the 
encrypted version of abc123.  I don't know why it doesn't like it.  Let me walk 
you through my zone creation process.  Maybe somebody can tell me what I am 
doing wrong... (By the way, this is an exclusive IP zone)

1) Install the zone
2) Make the zone ready (zoneadm -z zone1 ready)
3) Copy the below sysidcfg to the root/etc/ directory

network_interface=primary { dhcp protocol_ipv6=yes }
name_service=DNS nfs4_domain=dynamic

4) Login to the zone (zlogin -C zone1)
5) Open another connection to the global zone
6) Boot zone1 (zoneadm -z zone1 boot)
7) Then, I see the configuration process on the other terminal screen as 
outlined below.  It stops at the root password line and switches over to the 
interactive configuration
