CarlsonJ, I'm afraid that the unfortunate subject line of these e-mails has 
deceived you and others as to what the real problem here is. No one here is 
really trying to install an snv_version in a non-global zone that is different 
from the snv_version in the global zone (anyone who has more than 5 minutes of 
familiarity with zones knows that that obviously would not work). The real 
problem we are facing is this:


ZONES CANNOT BE INSTALLED anymore in OpenSolaris Indiana snv_129. They were 
working fine a while ago, but then something changed in the /dev repository 
when snv_130 came out and they stopped working! Updating past snv_129 is not an 
option because that will panic the system.... so we need to find a way to 
install snv_129 on a server and then install normal snv_129 build ipkg zones on 
that snv_129 server.

Steps to duplicate the problem:

Step 1: Install OpenSolaris Indiana snv_129 (either in VirtualBox or on real 

Step 2: Attempt to deploy a zone.

Step 3: The zone installation fails with this message:

r...@solarisunix:~# zoneadm -z testzone3 install
