Hi there,

I am pretty new to Solaris and zones, so please
excuse me if it's an FAQ, I do appreciate your
patience and assistance, with much detail as 

I have a need to create multiple zones on
a Solaris server machine. I am thinking of
whole root zones  Looking at the zone admin
docs, I am still not quite clear on how I should
set the "net" properties ('physical' and 'address').

'ifconfig -a' gives me the following info:

# ifconfig -a
mtu 8232 index 1
        inet netmask ff000000 
1500 index 2
        inet netmask ffffff00 broadcast
        ether 0:14:4f:45:62:a 

I think creating the zones on the private network
would be easier, meaning, the zones can have no 
network access to outside, only access from the
 the global zone and no access from other machines. Or

am I wrong? Otherwise, I assuem I have to get IP 
addresses and the zone names pushed into the central
YP server or something by our System Admin.

Either way, if I need to creat 3 zones on this 
server, what is the detailed procedure?  Here is
what I think I need to do:
# zonecfg -z myzone1
myzone1: No such zone configured
Use 'create' to begin configuring a new zone.
zonecfg:myzone1> create
zonecfg:myzone1> set zonepath=/export/zones/myzone1
zonecfg:myzone1> set autoboot=true
zonecfg:myzone1> add fs
zonecfg:myzone1:fs> set dir=/export/share
zonecfg:myzone1:fs> set special=/export/share
zonecfg:myzone1:fs> set type=lofs
zonecfg:myzone1:fs> end
zonecfg:myzone1> add net
zonecfg:myzone1:net> set address=??????
zonecfg:myzone1:net> set physical=?????

so what are the values I need to use for
"address" and "physical" and I how can I figure out?

If you can give me as much detail as posisble,
that'd help. AS I said, I am not very familiar with
Solaris system admin stuff, but I'd love to learn.

Thanks.  Jenny
