Can we mount inherit-pkg-dir as a READ-WRITE while creating a zone ?

While using the inherit-pkg-dir directives in creating the zone, the specified directory gets mount via 'lofs' file system, and it is read-only.

Could not we change this and mount the specified directory via inherit-pkg-dir with lofs as a READ-WRITE? Thanks
add inherit-pkg-dir
set dir=/sbin
set type=lofs
add options rw

No, the file systems that are inherit-pkg-dir are always read-only within the zone. You could create a lofs mount from
outside the zone and mount it in the same place inside the zone.

Why do you want to do this?
