Cannot Use Temporary Origins With Child Images

Error message: pkg install: The proposed operation on this parent image can not be performed because temporary origins were specified and this image has children.

The children in this message are non-global zones. The parent image is the global zone. Temporary origins were specified by using the -g option with the pkg install or pkg update command. The -g option cannot be used if the image has non-global zones.

Instead of using the -g option to specify a temporary origin, use the pkg set-publisher command to add that origin for that publisher in the global zone. When he publisher is configured in the global zone, the non-global zones can access the origin through the system repository.
