I have a Solaris 10 box with 3 zones. I want to sftp the certificate keystore file between zones.

Before hand I logged onto Zone1 and :___ to the keystore directory
    chmod -R 777 keystore
    chown -R sysadmin keystore

then logged into Zone2 as sysadmin and opened terminal
   su
    #sftp sysadmin@zone1(FQDN)
entered PW
    get keystore
result:  Cannot download directory

I am MCSE by trade and fumble thru Unix. To top it off and make it even worse I am dealing with Solaris 10 which I find theres not any good ref books on using it that I have found.

sftp is not meant for dir transfer, use scp -r

scp -r username@remotesystem:/path/to/remdir /path/to/local

If you have access to the global zone, you can do a simple cp to each of the zones.
