Use format to create your partitions, and then "newfs" to put a UFS filesystem on them.

i.e.  newfs /dev/rdsk/c1t0d0s0

Then mount as normal on your system.

in zonecfg, use add fs to create a special-dir in zone.

However, I would recomend using zfs for all of this.

Simply create a spool with your lun

"zpool create newpool <lundevice>"
zfs create newpool/newfs

Then you can use a dataset in the non-global zone to add it and make it exclusive to the zone.

zonecfg -z zonename
add dataset
set name=newpool/newfs
end

If you don't want to make the new fs exclusive to the zone, but want to use ZFS, then you can just use the "add fs" in the same manner.

This is all assuming your OS is up to date enough to support these options.

Just add a bit more infor for jeremycrussell's comment, to use ZFS you OS version should be at least Solaris 10 6/06 or newer.
