You can use an image of an Oracle Solaris system that has been fully configured with all of the software that will be run in the zone. See Creating the Image for Directly Migrating Oracle Solaris 10 Systems Into Zones.
Note that the zoneadm install -a command takes an archive of a physical system, not an archive of a zone.
You can use an image of an existing Oracle Solaris 10 native zone instead of an image from a physical system. See Chapter 31, (Optional) Migrating an Oracle Solaris 10 native Non-Global Zone Into an Oracle Solaris 10 Zone.
Note that the zoneadm attach -a command takes an archive of a zone, not an archive of a physical system.
The -c can be used to pass a sysidcfg file to use in configuring the zone after the installation completes.
If you created a Solaris 10 system archive from an existing system and use the -p (preserve sysidcfg) option when you install the zone, then the zone will have the same identity as the system used to create the image.
If you use the -u (sys-unconfig) and -coptions when you install the target zone, the zone produced will not have a hostname or name service configured.
