a question, I have dedicated NIC for two of my zones, but when I created the zones it looked as it created it like a VIP, see output below...

is that normal? I thought  the zone would be using e1000g1 or e1000g2 by itself

I am confused. You stated that the NIC is dedicated for two zones, but then you said that you expected that one of the zones would use the NIC by itself. Which of those two situations would you prefer.

thank you

- from the global zone  using the ifconfig command ---

e1000g1: flags=1000842<BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 5
inet netmask 0 ether 0:14:4f:81:d7:93 e1000g1:1: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 5
        zone rsmxap08z1
        inet netmask ffffff00 broadcast

If only one of those two zones is running, that output looks normal. The NIC must be plumbed in the global zone in order for a non-global zone to use it. The first interface (e1000g1) is the global zone's access - note that it is not UP - and the second interface (e1000g1:1) is marked 'zone'.
