Boot problem solaris 11.2 from ubuntu 14.10?

Ubuntu 14.10 is installed to the second partition of the external hard disk on ext4 file system and solaris 11.2 is installed to the first partition of the external hard disk with zfs filesystem, solaris installed the grub to the mbr of external hard disk.
Now solaris is bootable directly from the external hard disk, but i have problem with the ubuntu that boot from other grub2 usb flash drive. I added the ubuntu menu entry from the /boot/grub/grub.cfg to the solaris /platform/boot/grub/custom.cfg but get errors, now i am trying to boot the solaris from the ubuntu so i added these entries to the /etc/grub.d/40_custom and run the update-grub command, when boot the solaris menu get the error "no such file system".
This is the solaris entry in 40_custom:
menuentry 'Solaris' {
--set=root /
insmod gzio
insmod part_msdos
insmod ext2
insmod zfs
set root='hd0,msdos1'
set kern=/platform/i86pc/kernel/amd64/unix
$module /platform/i86pc/amd64/boot_archive
