SUMMARY: flarcreate on global zone on Sol 10 with zones?

Only got a few replies that didn't point me in any way I wanted to go. 
This is the solution I found:

Create the archive excluding what every you normally exclude, but also
exclude your zones directory.  After the archive is created, tarball the
zone directory.  The archive, along with the tarball, will have all you
need to build a replica of the system.  Also if you build with these files
on a different platform, after jumpstarting with the archive and
un-tarring the zones, you may need to reconfigure the zone's physical
ethernet name (eri0, bge0, etc).  I have done this cross-platform
(upgrading a physical server) with success.

> Anyone know the trick to do a flarcreate on a global zone?  When I try
to jumpstart an archive file made with flarcreate on a Solaris 10 box
with zones (doing it on the global zone), I always get this error after
the jumpstart is finished and it tries to boot up:
