Thank you for you answer.
     I had never though about running more than one instance of Trill on
the same machine... simnet links are new to me... a quick search on Google
didn't  give me much. Do you have any links about it?
      There is no problem in running this simulation on the global zone...
but the objective is to simulate a regular network running only regular
bridges and then I would substitute bridges for Trill links (one by one).
Can you see any problem doing that without virtualization?
      Thanks for your help.... I really appreciate.
