Help setting up a bhyve branded zone

So I started with following the example on the omnios page for bhyve (sorry, I can't provide the link because I'm a post shy of the 5 to give a URL):

And found that in the end I was able to create a running bhyve zone, but accessing it via zlogin results in a blank console. I've tried Debian 9 and Ubuntu 18.04 so far. I've had both these OSes work successfully on FreeBSD 11.1 and 11.2 with bhyve so it should be possible here.

OS version - omnios-r151028-d3d0427bff


zonename: ubuntu1804
zonepath: /zones/bhyve/ubuntu1804vm
brand: bhyve
autoboot: false
ip-type: exclusive
        dir: /home/stratacast/ubuntu-18.04-live-server-amd64.iso
        special: /home/stratacast/ubuntu-18.04-live-server-amd64.iso
        raw not specified
        type: lofs

        match: /dev/zvol/rdsk/rpool/zones/bhyve/ubuntu1804
        name: bootdisk

Did you have any output at all when you ran zlogin -C zonename or was it still just a blank screen?

Can you post the output of;

zoneadm list -cv

zoneadm list -p

Here is my output:

~  pfexec zoneadm list -cv                                                                                                  stratacast@omni
  ID NAME             STATUS     PATH                           BRAND    IP    
   0 global           running    /                              ipkg     shared
  10 nextcloud        running    /zones/normal/nextcloud        sparse   excl  
  13 ubuntu1804       running    /zones/bhyve/ubuntu1804vm      bhyve    excl

~  pfexec zoneadm list -p                                                                                                   stratacast@omni

zlogin -c ubuntu1804

does in fact give just a blank screen. I've also tried with Debian 9.

It is capital 'C' in zlogin.
zlogin -C <zone>

Does that give you blank screen as well ?

That was a typo, my bad. I used capital C which resulted in a blank screen

You might try:
 vmadm console

vmadm doesn't seem to exist on OmniOS, I can't find it in the repos either
