Firstly ensure both global zones are at the same Solaris level
then try zoneadm -z <zonename> attach -F.
This forces an attach and marks the zone installed without checking. Once booted do all the checks to ensure all is correct.

I have three V245 servers with identical architecture, running latest Solaris 10.I have configured a whole root zone using shared IP on one of the servers. I was able to easily clone a second copy of the zone on the first server. I have everything in the zone the way I want it, locked down, user accounts created, correct patches and packages, etc. Is it possible to copy this working (but halted) zone from one server to a second server? I do not want to move / migrate it to a new server, I want to put a working copy over, change the zone name and host name, etc., and fire it up so I don't have to do all the work for each server. I have read and followed the Oracle white paper "How to Move an Oracle® Solaris Container" with no success. Unfortunately the examples in the paper are for sparse zones. The problem I hit is I can get the date copied over, and run zonefg with no problem, but when I try to attach the zone, let alone when I tried to boot it (just in case it "just worked") I get a zone not installed error. If I do a zoneadm -z myzone install that will overwrite the files I copied from the working zone, defeating the purpose. Is there a way to just mark the zone installed and create a UID but keep the files I copied over?
