Backing Up Loopback File System Directories

Do not back up the loopback file systems (lofs) from within non-global zones.

If you back up and restore read/write loopback file systems from within a non-global zone, note that these file systems are also writable from the global zone, and from any other zones in which they are read/write mounted. Back up and restore these file systems from the global zone only, to avoid multiple copies.
