Thanks for the responses.

We don't plan on running the zone root on vxfs, it will be on ufs.

The VRTSvfxs package installs with parameters
SUNW_PKG_ALLZONES='true'
SUNW_PKG_HOLLOW='true'
SUNW_PKG_THISZONE='false'

so package content is not delivered to the zone just the package information
so it appears to be installed.

I think we are going to experiment with mounting the vxfs into the zone from
the global.
