When non-global zone configuration is moved from UFS root system to ZFS rpool system, the UFS zonepath fails to mount at boot from the /etc/vfstab file.

mount: Mount point /export/zones/wep-hcob-z04 does not exist.

svc:/system/filesystem/local:default: WARNING: /sbin/mountall -l failed: exit status 1

Reading ZFS config: done.

Mounting ZFS filesystems: (6/6)
