Note that you perform the internal zone configuration when you log in to the sys-unconfig zone for the first time. This is described in Internal Zone Configuration in System Administration Guide: Oracle Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Oracle Solaris Zones.
When responding to the system question asking whether the time is correct, do not modify the time displayed. If you modify the time, the system identification will fail and return to the time setting prompt, because non-global zones cannot modify the system clock by default. You must also accept the network configuration already specified in zonecfg for shared-IP zones.
If you plan to use an /etc/sysidcfg file to perform initial zone configuration, as described in How to Use an /etc/sysidcfg File to Perform the Initial Zone Configuration in System Administration Guide: Oracle Solaris Containers-Resource Management and Oracle Solaris Zones, create the sysidcfg file and place it the zone's /etc directory before you boot the zone.
You must be the global administrator in the global zone to perform this procedure.
global# zlogin -C s8-zone
global# zoneadm -z s8-zone boot
You will see a display similar to the following in the zlogin window:

Press Return to display the prompt again.
If you enter an incorrect response and try to restart the configuration, you might experience difficulty when you attempt the process again. This occurs because the sysidtools can store your previous responses.
If this happens, use the following workaround from the global zone to restart the configuration process.
global# zlogin -S zonename /usr/sbin/sys-unconfig
For more information on the sys-unconfig command, see the sys-unconfig(1M) man page.
