Yes, there's a limitation of smf to inherit some properties, especially property group. I once asked this question in the smf mailling alias. Ideally, uses can simply run: # svccfg -s console-login add vt8 # svccfg -s console-login:vt8 setprop ttymon/device="/dev/vt/8" But currently users have to manually add ttymon property group and set properties after adding an instance.
