Installing Solaris inside zone using automated installer

Hi guys,

I was wondering if Solaris 11 can be installed in zone using automated installer as I can with vmvare or virtualbox. To be precise, first I want to create a zone which will create empty box. After that, I want to install Solaris using automated installer because I have a bunch of packages made at my company and they are available in our internal IPS repo.

Installation with PXE is impossible. Solution is to generate profile form global zone and then customize it.
