Question Zones not booting after server reboot

Hello guys
This is my first post. I have very little experience and I woud appreciate your input on this problem.
I have a server running Solaris 10. In that server I have 2 zones that work perfectly fine, however, if I reboot the server, the zones don't boot and I have to do it manually. i checked the zone1.xml and zone2.xml files and they have autoboot="true".
After I manually boot the zones, I can login into them with no problems and I can ssh to them as well. Does anybody can give an idea?
Thanks in advance.

What says:
svcs -xv zones

$ svcs -xv zones
svc:/system/zones:default (Zones autoboot and graceful shutdown)
 State: online since Thu Sep 22 14:22:03 2011
   See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 5 zones
   See: man -M /usr/share/man -s 1M zonecfg
   See: /var/svc/log/system-zones:default.log
Impact: None.

Looks fine. Can you run the same command after a reboot while the zones aren't started ?

You can also check /var/svc/log/system-zones:default.log logfile for error messages around the time of the reboot.

Please Paste the O/P of
df -h

from both the zones and
df -Zh

from the phyisical server also
zonecfg -z <zone name> info

from physical server.

Also check under /etc/zones and make sure all the config files are present. You should see the index file along with the .xml files for each zone. Also, if the zones are in a separate file system make sure those file systems are mounted.
