Thank you sir. I had forgotten, overlooked, or other wise failed to try doing
a -F to force the attachment. I tried that and it shows as installed, then was
able to boot it.
Before that I got these errors:
zoneadm -z myzone attach
These packages installed on this system were not installed on the source system:
These patches installed on this system were not installed on the source system:
[solcon3/root] zoneadm -z myzone boot
zoneadm: zone 'myzone': must be installed before boot.
I don't understand the missing / not installed on source errors as these two
servers were created from the same image so there should not be any differences.
I will see what happens with the third server.
