Attaching Zone with packages not present on Global

Hello,

Before moving a zone, I attempted to detach and attach it to verify everything was OK.

Unfortunately attach failed with the following errors related to packages installed only on the non-global zone:

GLOBAL# zoneadm -z NONGLOBAL attach
These packages installed on the source system are inconsistent with this system:
SMCnc: not installed
(110)
....
_locate: not installed
(4.1)
_looker: version mismatch
(1.3.4)
(1.3.3)
_nbu: version mismatch
(6.5.6)
(6.0MP3)
These patches installed on the source system are inconsistent with this system:
125136-33: not installed
125137-33: not installed

'_' replaces our little prefix for privacy reasons here.


The mismatch I understand, and we resolved it.

The packages only installed on the non-global zone are for some of our tools that really do not need to be on the global zone, and not on all the other non-global zones either. One of our sysadmins attempted an attach-u, but that removed ALL of the packages a team had built and installed on the non-global zone.


Is there any way to attach the zone without a -f , and without losing the packages only on the guest?

Thank you.
