Applies to:

Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The following error is generated when patching Solaris if non-global zones are in a halted state.  (ie/  single-user)

 The significant symptom to note in the above error is the zone root (myzone) being reachable through a completely different zone (another_zone).  This doc only applies where the error has that symptom.  ie/  myzone reachable though some_other zone.
