Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

zoneadm list -iv is a nice command to use to see all the zones that you have and their state (running, installed, etc).
For every zone that you have, you expect to have an .xml file in the /etc/zones directory. You also have a file called index in that directory that contains a one liner for each zone. Don't edit that file directly though, it's updated by commands like zonecfg and zoneadm.
When adding a patch in a system with zones, if you type patchadd patch_name_here, it will try to install the patch in the global zone and then push it to the non global zones. If you want to try to install it in the global zone only, use the -G option with patchadd. Then, it will not try to push it to the non-global zones.
