Starting with the current Solaris release, a Solaris Flash archive cannot be properly created when a non-global zone is installed. The Solaris Flash feature is not currently compatible with the Solaris containers (zones) feature.
Do not use the flar create command to create a Solaris Flash archive in these instances:
In any non-global zone
In the global zone if there are any non-global zones installed
If you create a Solaris Flash archive in such an instance, the resulting archive might not install properly when the archive is deployed.
Workaround: It might be possible to create a Solaris Flash archive of a system that has installed zones if they are all halted. For more information, see http://opensolaris.org/os/community/zones/faq/flar_zones/.
