Solaris zone duplication

Hello there.
Plz, suggest me solution for my needs.
I have two same sun servers. One of theme is running zone. What i need is to duplicate this zone on other server and run it if 1st is not responding.
I know i can write shell script to perform ping test. But how do i duplicate running zone?

The professional solution would be to use Solaris cluster.

Otherwise, duplicating the zone can be done using regular tools (zoneadm clone/detach) and will highly benefit from using ZFS as the underlying filesystem.

Thanks for reply.
It seems like Sun Cluster is only appropriate solution, cuz clone/detach method will require zone halting.
