Hi all,

I'd like to use shared interface in my zone and configure it using dhcp
when I invoke zoneadm -z <myzone> boot.

This is not possible without IP Instances. To do this with a single interface
you will also need VNICs. IP Instances are Solaris Nevada already.
VNICs won't arrive until later this year.


OK, great FAQ, but they assume the interface is exclusively accessed from a zone, my question was about the virtual interface, e.g., bge0 that is shared among multiple zones as bge0:1, bge0:2, etc..? The qeustion remains unanswered? How will crossbow and IP instances help me here? BTW I'm playing with Nevada latest build.

What are the requirements?

Do non-global zones need to get their address via DHCP?
Do non-global zones need to share a single interface?
Does the global zone need to control or limit routing and other network setups?
Anything else?
