apply latest patchadd patch
Once the latest patch is applies, then either halted or running will work.
One other thing, make sure to run
patchadd -a <patchid-revision>
first, -a basically does a dryrun, boots any halted zones etc and does
if there are any issues with a zone not being bootable the output should
clearly indicate this ( examine the output carefully! ), and must be
remedied prior to running the actual patchadd. Might also catch issues
where a patch will not apply to one zone out of a list of zones, which
might also need to be examined depending on the patch etc.
