My normal procedure is to image-update, reboot, check that everything is working then update each zone. This has always worked because the zones would still be running. All my external services are running in zones (dns, smtp, http, ftp) so when I reboot I have no dns and therefore can't update the zones. Not much I can do about the single point of failure so is there a way I can update the zone before I reboot?
If zones sometimes appear to work in your example above, then that is simply luck and not by design. It is certain that things will break in that configuration from time to time. If you want to update the zones before updating the global zone then you might be able to halt the zones, detach them, then use the -R option to the pkg command to update the zone's roots. However, I've never tried that. As I said, this is all a temporary limitation until the pkg code is enhanced to automatically keep the zones in sync with the global zone.
