apply latest patchadd patch
119254 SPARC
119255 x86

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 
dependency checks.
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.
