that is correct. hand created symlinks can not be added to a zone via zonecfg(1M). zonecfg(1M) will only add /dev devices to a zone that have been generated by the system. assuming that /dev/cua/a existed on the system before you started creating links in /dev then adding that to the zone should work. > > The customer wants to take this a step further, since they use a large > number of these tty ports in their applications.
