Core operating system packages must be the same version in non-global zones as in the global zone. If the solaris publisher origin in this image is set to a package repository that does not contain the same versions of the system packages that are installed in the global zone, attempting to install a non-global zone results in the following error:

To install a non-global zone, the repository that you set as the solaris publisher origin must contain at least the same system software that is installed in the global zone where you are installing the non-global zone. The repository can also contain older or newer software, but it must contain the same software that is installed in the global zone. The following command shows that the /var/share/pkgrepos/solaris repository is a suitable publisher origin for this global zone because this repository contains the same version of the pkg:/entire package that is installed in the global zone:
$ pkg list entire NAME (PUBLISHER) VERSION IFO entire 0.5.11-0.175.2.0.0.26.0 i-- $ pkgrepo list -Hs /var/share/pkgrepos/solaris firstname.lastname@example.org solaris entire 0.5.11-0.175.2.0.0.26.0:20131028T190148Z $ pkg set-publisher -G '*' -M '*' -g /var/share/pkgrepos/solaris/ solaris
Make sure the svc:/application/pkg/system-repository:default and svc:/application/pkg/zones-proxyd:default services are online in the global zone. Make sure the svc:/application/pkg/zones-proxy-client:default service is online in the non-global zone.
